Advertisement I've had my P. Brachyramosa for months now and the last time I saw it was the day I put it in its enclosure. I know they are obligate burrowers, so it doesn't surprise me that it's constantly MIA. However, the last two times I fed it, the crickets went into the burrow and I left them in there over night. Come morning they were both dead in the water bowl. I see no indication of it webbing up the entrance to its burrow to prepare for a molt (but then again I'm not sure how far down it has dug). I heard they stink to high hell when they die (kind of like dead mice), but so far no foul odor. I do not want to disturb it by digging it up, especially in case it is molting, but with this one I really cannot tell if it dead or hiding lol. I do not own any other obligate burrowers, so I'd like some advice from those who have more experience. When do you assume you have dead t in this situation and what do you do about it?
