    Jaws had dropped a leg the other day and was generally lethargic since. I have had him in ISO and last night he came out to eat and drink. I have been keeping an eye on him on and off all day, and just a couple minutes ago I saw him out of his shell more then he has been as of late. I sniffed, and smell of death :-(. I picked him up and his body fell out of the shell onto the sand.

    I have a feeling it was probably from PPS :-( Poor baby, I barely got to know him. RIP baby.

    Yep that sure sounds like PPS, poor little guy, sorry for your loss, sometimes nothing we do can help them, sometimes by the time we get them it is already too late, at least he had a nice comfy place to live out his last few days :)

    I did the best I could for him even only for a couple months. I didn't have the knowledge when I got him that I have now.

    Poor guy. It's Ok. I tmight even be good that you kept him like the pet store so that he could get use to your house and then move him into better conditions. At least he died with a very nice home. I'm sorry.:(

    I'm so sorry. :( It's always extra sad if you hardly got to know them. You are a great owner, and did the best you could. Now Jaws is in Hermie Heaven exploring the beaches.
