Hey everyone,

Well, the excitement of proving out my poss. het female as a 100% het albino kind of faded a bit this past week as I discovered that one of the babies prolapsed his hemipeni (both of them). I've never had to deal with this in any of my adult males, so I have no idea what to do at this point. I've tried spraying him down near his cloaca with cool water, hoping this would things contract back inside. But I'm afraid I'm doing more harm than good at this point by messing with him so much. I'm getting more worried at this point since it's been a couple of days since I first noticed the problem.

To make matters a bit more concerning, this baby still hasn't shed (it's been 13 days since DOB) and he was the "runt" of the litter who I suspect was the very smaller baby of the pair of twins which were possibly born in the litter.

If anyone can help and give me some advice, please do so.

Thanks in advance for any help you all can offer.

Jay
