I'm one of those sort of people who are constantly worrying something is wrong even if Im not really doing anything wrong.. In a way, its a good thing, because it means I'll look into it.

Here's how I care for her.

Diet: Mazuri, (safe) weeds, endive (for when I run out of weeds)
- She is bathed every day with warm waterfor 20-25 minutes
- I take her outside when it isn't freakishly hot for exercise (and watch her like a hawk)
- Humidity is normally around 70%
- Temperature is 70-85 (cool area to warm area)
- Enclosure size is more than 10 times her length and 5 times her width (heard that was a good measurement)
- Bedding is cyphress mulch
- I spray her hide a bit at night to keep it humid in there

Edit: Oh also!! Do any of you think you could give an estimate on how old she is? She is definitely at least 6 months old.

I'd say not quite a year yet.
