My pair has now been in the cooler for 2 weeks. The temps are stable, the humidity has come down a bit with the use of desiccants (still about 65% to the high 80's).

I took your advice Eve with the paper towels and shallow dish of water. Problem is my male moves around some and knocked it over two consecutive days in a row, so I pulled the water out completely - he doesn't seem to be interested in drinking anyway (even with a dropper).

Interestingly a couple of times I've checked on them, my male appears to be completely asleep, but is standing in what looks like his normal basking position (on all fours with with his toes up). He did that for a couple of days after I changed the substrate to paper towels and now seems to be settling in - but I still thought it was odd - anyone else seen this behavior while brumating?
