    Hi,

    I have two baby Leopards they are almost 1 years old. It appears they might be starting to Pyramid.

    I have their house outside in Santa Clarita CA, need suggestions.

    • What is the best way to add humidity to their cage? Their house is a wood box with a mesh, wire lid with a latch. Pics attached
    • What should they be eating?
    • How often should I be soaking them?
    I am currently second guessing everything I am doing.

    Your main problem was keeping them outside their first year. They should be indoors in a covered enclosure with 80%+ humidity.

    We have all the info you need. You just have to read it and follow it. Read the leopard and/or sulcata care sheet and all closed chamber threads. Use the closed chamber until they are at least 2 even 3 years old so make it big enough, 4x5 or 4x6.
