she is on her back not moving when I left the house 5 hours ago she was up right. I can see her in her hide how long before I should start to worry with a 7-8 inch girl? The temp is 72 humidity 96 i am turing the heat up untill she is done molting

I wouldnt turn the heat up. Shes happy to molt in the conditions you provided already.
I would wait at least another 5 hours before starting to even think about worrying, im sure Fran will be able to offer more advice but i would say leave things as they are and dont disturb her.

Raising the temps anymore may reduce the humidity. Good luck with the molt. :)

ok so I will leave the temp alone and just keep an eye on her.

she is about 3/4 of the way out and looks good once she started moving things really speed up.

Its hard to a pic with her in the hide. I can just see her with a flash light but will post pics as soon as she is out in the open, and she looks to be out and stretching
