Thanks for the suggestions. I cant find sphagnum moss where I live, I have asked the Home Depot if they can try order it in, but for now I use ground coconut husk, which basically looks like the regular peat moss. I mist her habitat daily and keep the ground moist, and I have a reptile heat pad under one end of the tank as well. She also has a large bowl of water which she soaks in daily. She has some very slight pyramiding but where we live is cold almost all year so she cant go outdoors except for during the day for a couple months in the summer.
She seems to be feeling better now, she is back to her normal active self and her appetite is coming back. I wont let her roam the yard freely anymore, I will make a pen in one area where there is just grass, so she cant eat any bad plants.
Thanks again for replying........
