    [​IMG] One of my 1 1/2 yr old reds is molting I think(she is the only one) I can handle how terrible she looks but what I don't understand is why she is walking sideways. When she walks her legs seem to buckle under her(she almost sits on the ground) and she walks sideways from time to time and then at other times she just crosses her feet when she walks and that messes her balance. She seems alert and is eating and drinking like the rest of them. Anyone have any hints. There are two other Reds and then 10 black astralops(7months old). No one else is molting. One of the other reds was sick and she seems to be doing better. Thanks for any help [​IMG]

    I'd like to know, too. My Ameracauna is doing a rapid molt and walks crouched down.

    I've posted about it, too.

    Good luck!
