I'm a new owner with two young hissers. One just molted for the first time a few days ago (I missed the molt so I don't know how healthy it was, but its shell looks fine and almost identical to its siblings, who also molted maybe a week ago), and yesterday evening I found it upside down and unable to right itself. I took it out of the enclosure and it was too weak to stand and would only "shiver" its legs. I tried to give it some water then put it back into the enclosure inside a hide for the night. This morning, when I checked again, it was "shivering" more violently, as if it has more energy now, but is still unable to stand, grab onto things or right itself. I tried feeding it a bit of orange and water. Its sibling has been in the same enclosure with the same treatment for the entire time I've had them, but is alert and responsive. What's going on? Is there anything I should do? Should I put the poor thing in the freezer (I really don't want to do this)? I'm extremely upset. Please help!
