    My male thick-tail has just been hiding under his rock for the past couple of days, and doesn't come out, not even at night.
    Just wondering if this was normal behaviour, or if there could be something wrong?

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers.

    Is there any easy way to tell?

    I've had him for a few weeks, and he usually is very active of a night, but not the last couple of days.

    He may just be settling in.

    Its that time of the year when all reps start to slow down, if he is healthy i wouldnt be too worried.
