    It has been 10 months so I decided to clean out the enclosures. I moistened the substrate just enough to pack it tightly together and she refuses to step one foot on it, that's saying alot since she has eight of them. She has been on her log for five days now and refuses to come down. She still eats and when she wants water she will climb the glass to get to the water dish.
    It's like when you were a kid and climbed the furniture to keep from touching the floor. :D
    It's almost completely dry so she will be happy in a day or two.

    They certainly have very definite likes and dislikes :)
