Hi everyone, my russian is a 2005 female which I obtained as a CB hatchling. She has been doing fine; but her recent behavior has me a bit concerned. She has never been brumated. She lately (3-4 months now) has been burrowing almost constantly. I remove her from her timothy hay every few days to show her food. She usually eats about 1/3 of her usual amount then burrows again. No changes in husbandry has been made since I got her as a baby.

P.S. She is a RITA survivor(spent 2 weeks in a hot FED-EX office)as a hatchling.

Any advice would ease my mind.

thanx,

Lizard Lance
