I've had my 3 month old skink for about 3 weeks..... he hides ALL the time.
I'm worried he isnt getting enough UVB.
He is eating and pooing well.
Will he come out more once he is fully settled?

What type of BT skink?
Where purchased?
Do not worry about UVB, many keepers including myself do not use
What are your temps/humidity?
Can you post pictures of your skink and setup?
