I currently have four DHLs that I brought out of hibernation about one month ago. Three are doing perfectly fine and if you just glanced at the fourth you would think he was also perfect. He is very fat and looks in perfect healthy.
However, there is something wrong with his eyes. He is having trouble opening them. If I soak him in warm water he has been able to open them afterward and then would eat. Now, though, both eyes seem to be a little swollen and he is having more problems opening them. After soaking him for quite a while today he opened them a little, but not much.
At first I thought this might be a lighting issue, but the bulb I am using is basically new. Temp is also not a problem. Everything is exactly the same as before hibernation when they all thrived.
It could be an issue with shedding - I am not sure. Sometimes I can get a little substance off around his eyes - could be skin or could be something else.
I have tried to take pictures but I can't get a good one of his eyes.
Any ideas?
