A few questions!

Postby Maddy5150 » Tue Jan 26, 2021 12:13 pm

Hello all! I have a few questions today. I just got a baby crestie and obviously, I still have ziggy my baby girl who is now 15 months! My question about this is that I'm scared to hold ziggy after hold mercury my crestie, I'm scared ill pass stuff back and forth although I've been hand washing between holding each I'm still nervous. Lastly, Ziggy has been lazy recently just laying on her hammock with eyes half-open or closed she eats poops and does move around but she is lazy on the hammock I will mention she is shedding right now and I know its brumation season could she be semi burmating? Is she lazy from the shed? Is something wrong? Her basking temps are 99.7 and her cool side is 78 I also use a T5W/reflector for reference. Thanks in advance!

It's good that you're thinking of their wellbeing when handling them. A thorough hand wash should do a good job at preventing issues though, so just keep that up and it's probably not worth worrying much about.

They do go through phases in which they are a bit lazier. Not necessarily brumation though. The shed could certainly contribute to it. That tends to put them in a bad mood (understandably). If all else is well, I'd just let her do her thing.
