  • low humidity
  • temperatures too high

If not using a prepared diet, switch to one by Repashy, Pangea, or Clark’s. If already using one, mix in more water with the powder. Check that the humidity is consistently between 60-80% and mist often. (Brief dips down to 50% are acceptable, but the enclosure should be misted immediately.)

When in doubt, call an exotic vet.
