    My littlest baby....my new one Chance that I got from ratty ol petsmart. The one that was missing some limbs, well she/he past last night. I woke this morning to find that she had not moved from the spot she was at in front of the food dish, so I picked her/him up and rubbed her claw and usually she would flinch....only she didn't move time. I do not know what to do with her/him. I don't want to see him/her go. This is the first death in my hermie family!:(

    A first death is always hard. Does he smell? That is the sign that he's in hermie heaven.
    You can bury him in your back yard.

    No smell - then put a hut over him (a butter tub with a door cut out works) and leave him be. Put a pop bottle lid next to him with some raw honey in it.

    He smells, bad... I am having a proper burial for him this afternoon. I had to make sure first. I'm making my kids do it with me... Yeah I am still not over it, though in the back of my mind I kinda knew he wouldn't make it I still had hope! My others seem ok I've had one buried in the sand for 2 days now, maybe he is molting. Well I'm off to make preparations. Thanks Wizkids!
