I've had this emerald for about 4 or 5 months now. Everything was good up until about two months ago. Then he stopped eating and was more active (during the day) than usual.

At first I didn't think much of it. But it's just gotten worse over time. He has not eating anything in two months now. And he seems to be always trying to escape his enclosure. It's getting to the point where it's rare to see him coiled up.

He is obviously not comfortable and content in his enclosure. However I have no idea why.

I have tried to adjust the temps anywhere from mid 80's to mid 70's (day time ambient temps) and everything in between. Night drops as low as high 60's to mid 70's.

Humidity is around 85 to 95% during the day. And around 65% at night. Whole set up is controlled by a ecozone controller and a mist king system.
