I turned the soil and added a bunch of wet sod from the lawn to freshen up my bio active dirt. This also allowed me to check the texture of the dirt at depth and subsequently cheese off my critters. I had to relocate Cera to a 55 gallon tank for about an hour, and I got hissed at and tail whipped for it, Littlefoot wouldn't even let me pick him up at all, so I worked around him. The surprising thing is, even after two years, that dirt still had awesome texture and humidity all the way down. The old "log ramp" that was eventually buried as I added dirt over time has disintegrated from wood rot, it literally crumbled as I pulled it out. The treated framework of the cage itself is still holding strong...

My wife Dorothy getting her hands dirty...



remember the plastic pipe?? I pulled it out.



Littlefoot has to keep inspecting my work... He's not real happy with me at the moment.



Everything out of the way exposes the chamber they had dug out deep below the surface.



A sweet tongue shot..



Not exactly sure why, but Littlefoot began swatting at the sod with his front left foot???



one of the three tote boxes full of wet sod I dumped in there...



I left the pipe lay on the surface, didn't take long to get used again...





They still have that slender build.
