    Default Lost little hatchling :'(

    A two day old hatchling died today. He was housed with other hatchlings and dropped his tail for an unknown reason, probably another hatchling. He hadn't been fed (I fed them tonight). I don't know what he died from. His stomach's skin was all rinkled, which made me think dehydration, but his clutch mate is completely fine. Parasites yet I doubt it as all the others are fine, I hope it's not parasites. Not having food for two days is another thought, but again, the clutch mate is fine. I'm so sad, RIP little guy.

    Thank you. The temps get pretty cold especially at night where they are kept, but I had a heater on. All the others are fine so it probably wasn't temps either. I can't help feeling like it might have been my fault.
