Re: Don't know what to do

If you're still having trouble, I suggest playing with him/her. I made mine a "playground" in a cardboard box with a towel for carpet. I also put in some sea shells, a piece of wood, and flowers for decoration, which he sleeps under and climbs on. You should also give it a bath on weekends...

Re: dark spots

You should bathe it in water (I put mine in the sink today and he wouldn't get out until I drained it). Don't use soap, it might irritate it.

Re: Newbie Help

But this morning I found him buried under it, and there is a bit of water. My concern is this: will he drown? I think he was sleeping in it, so I took out some water, but ...
