Hello everyone! I got my new Russian hatchling Peetrie in August. He was hatched in June so he is about 3 months old. He was pooping about every other day for the last month; but the last two weeks he hasn’t pooped at all. He also used to eat a lot b it he only eats a couple of leaves before he goes and burrows into his hide until his soak the next day.

He might be constipated. Feed wet foods like cucumber and aloe vera, and up your soak times.
