Hello to all, I have a Marbled Salamander I've had her for about a year now and shes always been very healthy and active and chubby.

She usually is out and about at night and in the day time hides away in her borrow under the split log, she makes it very known when shes hungry stalking me from her cage haha, and if she doesn't make an appearance by feeding time i go looking for her which i have to do more in the winter, i feed her crickets and meal worms (mostly meal worms) and earth worms when i have the time to dig them up but since I've moved i haven't found any i think its because all the sand in the soil.

I usually feed her once or twice a week, but sometimes she misses a feeding like she did this week because I was out of worms and my family was sick and short on money so we didn't go out to buy any mealies.

So last night when I got home with the worms and fed everyone she was in a spot she never borrows in and her skin was all rubbery and dry looking, and she wouldn't eat the meal worm (which is VERY unlike her LOL) so i took her and put her and i critter keeper to humid soak her in warm water and cleaned her cage, I've been misting her like crazy and this morning she looks better but not her usual.

I have some Repta-Aid from when i had a leopard gecko that was sick two years ago, and it says it can be given to Amphibians, i was wondering if y'all would suggest trying that (and if so how do i go about getting the stuff in her?) or if anyone knows whats going on or anything else i could be doing.

Any help would be very greatly appreciated, Thank you.
