 Acting weird...

I always have weird-os for pets it seems. So far my hardest to care for pets are supposed to be the easiest, my emperors. I have 2 that live in the same tank, have for quite awhile, and havent been a problem. 1 is acting normal, hanging out under a hide, rarely catch him out and about. I should clarify, I refer to them both as ’him,’ I dont know what sex they are. Anywho, my other one is all the suddenly hanging out out of the hide all the time. I havent seen him under a hide for about 4 days now. He also seems almost like hes getting smaller, however that could just be me being nervous.

Has anyone else seen this? I figured it was one of a few things:
1-Normal
2-The one that is staying in the hide is prego
3-the one that is staying out is ill somehow.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I think the situation is under control, I think he is molting. I led him to one of the hides that I can see in easier, and he has moved around a little in there over the last couple days and his exoskelton is flaking off the way it looks. if he doesnt come out by the weekend, im going to go in and check on him, but I’ll just leave him at peace for now

A turn for the worse...T.R. passed away. I am pretty sure the other one is gravid, so that could explain it. It is sad about T.R., but at least the other one is doing good.

The sand boa is pretty neat, that was one that the gf bought. Easy to care for, but hard to find on the tank. not a bad deal at $50

the hognose is exciting. he (maybe she, going to have it sexed soon) is about 2.5-3 feet and VERY fast. about as fast as the flat rock scorpion and very powerful. He feels stronger than the ball pythons. He hasnt struck at me yet and he even got ’spooked’ a couple times. I would highly suggest seeing/holding one in person before purchasing just because of how fast they are, I was really suprised. ALso they get pretty big, they can reach 9 ft, but typically 7-8. I’ll try to get some pics tomorrow night
