    I get the impression then that it is better to underwater mexican pings than to overwater them......I learned that the hard way with one of my P.agnatas.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    They went more then a year without water. They got about 90F high and 65F low.
    I didn't think they would live.

    That is absolutely fascinating!

    They seem to be doing quite well.

    Did they shrink? I wonder how they must have met their water requirements... Air Humidity?
