I recently got two new fire skinks for my birthday and I had a couple questions becuase I never owned a fire skink before.
First off, I started an album on here but I don't know how to attach it to this message so I'll attach just a few of them. The first question I had is, can anyone tell me whether they are juvenile skinks or if they are older. I'm thinking juveniles becuase they look rather small and pictures I've seen, they look bigger. I need to know whether I should be feeding them every day or every other day, that's why I ask.
The other question I have is about their poop. Can anyone tell me what it looks like becuase I haven't noticed any in the substrate. I got them on the 19th of May and they have been eating very good since day one, but I haven't seen any poop. Could they be going underneath the substrate, becuase they do like to burrow a lot. The one burrows way more than the other. Stubbs comes out a lot during the day and is very social. He's (I think it's a he) even been letting me hold him some. But the other one gets frightened easily still, not quite as bad as when we first got it, hence the name Hidey.
And the other thing I wanted to mention is, I got some humidity moss today to keep the humidity up, becuase I was having to mist the substrate way too much before. It seems to be working alright. It's keeping it around 70 degrees. Is that okay or is there something that would work better?
Anyway, if anyone could help me with these couple questions I would appreciate it. Thanks a lot. I'm sure I'll have more questions in the future.
