So my B. vagans is in a jar half filled with a mix of peat moss and eco earth coconut fiber for substrate, with a bit of cork bark like a cave, a tiny rock just because, a couple sticks for decoration, and a small bit of sponge I shaped like a plant that I periodically spray with water. Just recently Red started to burrow under the cork bark. He's pushed all the dirt he's moved back just far enough that it completely blocks every centimeter of the entrance to his little cork cave. There's barely enough room between the back of the bark and the glass of the jar for him to get out. Is he doing this on purpose in preparing to molt? Should I dig in there and pull the dirt out of the entrance? Will he move it on his own if I don't? Anyone else notice this behavior in burrowing terestrials? He's only a quarter inch sling, should I be concerned or am I just being a paranoid parent?
