    How long has she been sitting like that? Has she moved since? I don't like the look of the curl on those front legs. Keep me posted on her condition would ya?

    Will do. Shes looking good I think. I just checked on her and moved her around with the end of a pencil. Shes still moving. A bit slow at the moment. Shes chilling partially in the water dish at the moment.

    I think shes been in the same spot for a couple hours.

    What you want to watch for are her legs curling under her.. it's called a death curl: http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/b...e/DSC00185.jpg

    Just to be safe, put her in a nice cool place. Somewhere in the low 70's.. Is she just spinning in circles a bit when she moves?

    At least the rest of her looks good. If it's not a full on death curl when they arrive, they usually snap out of it in a day or so.

    I'm just over protective is all.. I don't like being able to see their iridescent foot pads from a top view. It's "abnormal".

    She actually seems to be recovering nicely since I unpacked her. I have her in a nice dark cool closet space of mine. When She walks, she seems to be gaining some strength back.

    GOOD! Sounds more like symptoms of shipping in cold weather rather than warm, but as long as she is getting more movement to her I'm pleased. Just leave her be for a while, workout, go to class, and check on her again when you get home. Lemme know her current condition at that time Dr. Woodville..
