My G. Aureostriata has decided to pile dirt in every opening to it's burrow possible. It's done this before in premolt a couple months after I bought it. I figured it's apart of premolt, but the thing is he molted a month ago. Is he just being his natural bulldozer self?

Mine never took to the hide I provided her... she ripped up the plastic plants I put in her enclosure, and then excavated a little ditch behind her cork bark. She seems happy sitting in the little space behind the bark.

sequestered

Mine is sequestered in his coconut, with everything sealed up except for a small little gap under one edge where he expects his dinner to be delivered. Does this every once in a while, then generally molts, rips down the opening to his hide, and bulldozes everything in sight for a while. Repeat as necessary. Seems like it's the G. aureo way. Amusing.

Mine never really lived up to it as often as otehrs I've heard of. But as long as it eats I am going to be fine. It's just a little 3" juvi. I had a period of powerfeeding so it was confusing. It is extremely amusing though.
