Not feeling too good

No, not me; I'm fine.

It's poor Hermie, here. He just molted, and is feeling the stress. His shell is too small now; it's too tight around his mid-section. Besides that, he's exhausted from crawling backwards out of his old skin. That's hard work!

He spent the afternoon and the next morning hiding in a corner behind a rock (but facing the glass), moping.

Doesn't he look miserable?

Not to worry; this afternoon he was back to his old happy self.

Detail of those wonderful, fiery "flags".

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
