Well my cherryhead passed all the mulch he ate lastnight during a soak, I been soaking more often to see if he would pass them. It is amazing the size of stuff they can eat and still pass it. I was worried about him but he is good now and not eating anymore mulch.
I noticed last night that he now had three little spots on his plastron from over hydration. Some may call shell rot. The weird thing is that I have had him for a year and this never came up until I did a mulch change last week. I didn't change the humitity or any thing else just mulch, everything else stayed the same.
Well to take care of that issue I dropped the humitity, dryed up the mulch alittle and treated the spots.
He is a bueatiful tort with alot, I mean alot of marbling, He may be become callico when he gets older. I see if I can post pics.
Has any one had this issue with thier cypress mulch?
