    Mazuri LS for Hermann's?

    Hey Tom, the LS I have is actually smallish pellets and did soften when soaked. Not nearly as quickly as the regular, but after about 5 minutes they squished. I toss my Mazuri with dried herbs but they are the LS plain. But... I'm the only person I've found to have torts that eat the LS so...

    Humidity HELP!

    Taking cues...

    That's why I posed the question, it seems odd that they preferred it when it was even warmer. They're almost always on the warmer side... And they don't hide during their day cycle, they're always out... on the warm side!
