Hey guys I haven’t been on here in a while. I’m getting a bit concerned with how much Creeper started pyramiding in the last 2 months. They shot up over double weight, and grew almost 2 inches(between width and length together). I started noticing the potential for pyramiding when we had that harsh weather here in Texas in late winter/ early spring. But since then the rate of growth just skyrocketed and now the pyramiding is getting pronounced. What more can I do to help slow this down? Creeper is about 10 months old now and 330g and 4.5inches in length F5D10590-142B-419A-97FA-F98940E66298.jpeg

Need details of how you house her and equipment you use and temp and humidity.
Is she in a closed chamber? Are you using a mvb when she is inside?

The only way to see pyramiding when it's just starting is by pictures straight from the side. We need to see the outline of the scutes, especially the vertebral scutes.
