    My Darwin repeatedly jacks up his front and rear end when preparing to poop, and I find myself making hydraulic lifter noises while he's doing it.

    Daisy does that, but’s sticks her head in and out her shell like peek a boo... we soak her everyday but 2 times she did a poop in her food dish and it took elbow grease with mr magic eraser and vinegar to get it out that porous terra-cotta dish, and now it’s still stained, and the 2 times she dug to bottom of her hide, terra-cotta pot on side, pooped in there, kept smelling something, then found it, OMG, I was tempted to just buy a new one!
