I was wondering how wet Is to wet for a baby sulcata this is how wet it is at some spots I can squeeze water out of it if I try really hard but most spots I can squeeze water out or IMG_1554772157.879332.jpg

Also when I push on the bottom of my sulcatas shell I noticed it was kinda squishy where I could push on it and I could see the fat near is back legs move and it wasn’t as hard as the top is this because the substrate is to wet what can I do about this and how long will it take to harden???

He also spends a lot of time in his hide I made for him it is a half log

Your substrate looks fine, but I'm not a fan of those smaller domed lights. I like to use the 10 or 12 inch domes. A bit of 'give' to the baby's under side is quite normal.
