Springtails

Postby Brennan » Wed Jul 06, 2022 5:41 pm

Hi I have a blue tongue and have tons of springtails in my Viv. I see them on his head and in the water and everywhere else. I’m worried that they could be harming him and was wondering if anyone new anything. Thank you!!!

Springtails will not harm your skink and can actually be beneficial as they help decompose mold, fecal matter, etc. Many add springtails into the enclosure for this reason. Just ensure you can differentiate between springtails and snake mites
