 Death :( :(

... i walked into my room today only to find... my P.emp dead in the middle of the cage.. i had just changed his substrait (dirt and moss) and i had put a heat lamp to raise the temp because it was at about 67 F and i was holdin ghim earlier today... and he seemed fine.. when i found him the temp was at 90 i dont think that the heat was a factor because it was only 10 degrees over the recomended temp...

if any one has any other reason why he (or she) could have died other than the heat please tell me so a can make adjustments for my next P.emp

The reasons could be many. The type of dirt you used could be one, depending on what kind it was, as could the moss, depending on where it came from. The temp could be a factor if it was raised too quickly, lack of humidity with high heat could be a factor, diseased prey could be a factor, old age could be a factor, too much handling could be a factor....the list can go on and on.
