Rep: Red Eft14 has started on the right path
Default Red eft got into a bad situation

So as I check up on my red eft everyday for daily misting if needed, to change the water dish and feed it.So as I picked up his hideing log I noticed he was squshied under it! I freaked out and picked him up to see if it was dead.It was flat around the upper body and its head a little bit.It must of tryed to go under the log for some reason and got stuck.I now changed the hideing log into a small light weight corkc bark.After that checked back on it about an hour or two later he seemed fine! I picked it up agian to see if he was hurt but it seemed active agian and it only has a really small scar on it.It's back was also a little twisted but after a while i semmed normal agian.This just shows how hardy red efts are but also how sensitive they can be.Just thought I would share and also you guys fell free to share any other story that your newts had similair to this.

Their recuperative powers are mind-boggling.

Your right I really thought it's internal body parts where injured but it seems fine exept for the scars which should heal.
