Thank you so much for your posting. I have bought a smaller rubbermaid container and did part soil and sand mixture to keep the humidity up and then added shredded cypress mulch and spaghnom moss along with a little potho plant. My room is heated to 83 degrees and along with my other reptile lights it stays very warm during the day. I have a Reptisun 5.0 over his enclosure. At night I will place the top on loosely to keep humidity in. I have been soaking him already in Pedialyte but soaked him again tonight in ensure and pedialyte. I do leave food for him every morning.I am going tomorrow to buy one of the humidity things that I saw at the reptile show in Tinley and add that to really raise the humidity. What do you think about using a egg incubator? Last question, should I add a heating pad underneath the end where he buries himself?

Thanks again and I am trying everything and anything at this point. I have even thought I should have my exotic tube feed him once or twice. I know this will be stressful so is a very last resort.

Linda
