    Hello I'm sorry to bring this back up I know it got a lot of posts already...
    I read toms post about pyramiding and also everything else there is about pyramiding on this forum.

    I got a few questions and I hope u guys don't mind

    1 year ago I adopted a sulcata
    She's 2 years old I think that the breeder I got her from didn't do a good job about humidity...
    I think she is slightly pyramiding
    I have her in a closed chamber with over 90% humidity she has a water bowl that she uses everyday drinking and laying in it I also spray her carapace with water twice a day.

    Two questions
    1. Will the slight pyramiding go away or at least will get smoother?
    2. If I would start soaking daily would I get better results than without?

    Thx for ur time

    1. You can’t reverse it, but you can keep it from getting worse.

    2. Yes, it would.
