On Thursday I noticed that Tallulah was hiding behind her rock which I have never seen her do. She shot behind it again Friday and I had a good look round to see if anything had spooked her :? Her viv is across the other side of the kitchen to jed and although not opposite I began to wonder if he had caught her eye. Today I saw her run and Jed looked as if he was looking in her direction so I decided to move her just in case :? She is now in her viv on top of Jed's, he may know she's there but can't do anything about it :!: my plan for when she is bigger to have her full length viv on top of Jed's anyway, I am hopeful that this will work :wink: Also a quick question, every time I feed or change the water in one viv I then wash my hands before I feed and change the other one. Is this necessary or am I being over cautious. I do the same with handling them also :wink:

Hi no you are doing the right thing by handwashing etc before handling them. You can use that anti bac gel as well which may be easier.
Hopefully with them being out of 'sight' of each other it may stop the intimidation, although poeplo have had to move them into seperate rooms as they can still 'feel' the presence (sounds like something out of Star Wars) :mrgreen:
Let us know how they get on :D
