Striking

So our baby has been striking lately and I'm not sure what to do. Should we hold her less, more? Approach differently? She hides a lot so we have to search for her. We have a tank that opens from the front so it's not as easy to grab her from her midsection.

Just keep handling like normal. Striking is super common with babies, but most of them grow out of it. Try not 'chase' her around the tank when you go to get her out. Just reach in confidently and scoop her up without hesitation.

Our problem is that she hides really well in the ground cover We have to lift things and find her. We've taken things to reduce this issue, she's still nervous and reactive but we're continuing to handle her.
