 New molter surfaced today! :D

As I posted in HCA, they seem to be camera shy after a molt. This one was under for about three weeks!

you don’t maddy. It’s best to leave them alone. If you must dig them up, be careful, isolate them in moist sand with their exoskeleton with them. Dig a hole for them and gently cover them with loose sand. They need to eat their exo for nutrition.

Most of the time, my hermies dig under for the heck of it, not molting at all.
