Strange smell

Post by beastyhylian » Fri Sep 16, 2016 11:08 am

Hey all,
So I've recently put some chicken in for my hermies to eat. This is the first time I've ever given them anything meat, but anyways I left it in for about 24 hours. I noticed an awful smell when I took it out. I can't tell if it's just bad meat smell or possible death under the sand. It's been a full day since I took it out and replaced it with veggies and the smell is still there. I have two underground who were from a store and they weren't in the best of condition (one missing a leg and some leg tips missing on both). So do you guys think I should dig down in search of a smell, or give it more time?

They probably stashed a piece of chicken somewhere. It happens.

Yup. Like soilentgringa said, they probably stashed or buried some chicken. Mine buried a piece of squid and it took me about a week to finally figure out where it was. :shock:

Cooked or raw?? depends on that, how humid and warm it is inside and other side of the tank..I put food in at night before I go o bed and take it out before noon.
