I dug. I didn’t find him, but found his exoskeleton

Goodbye my little E. See you soon.
Bye Fred. You lasted almost 4 years with me. Hope you're with my E now! See you soon Reeba as well. I can't believe I lost you only after a month.

It's so hard to handle, even though I pretty much expected him to be gone... :( :crybaby:

Yes.. Found his shell, and might have found a meaty leg, not an exo. Most of what I found was exo, but not all

I have not heard my E scratching the glass at the bottom either. Really nervous
wait, they scratch at the glass? How loud is it, I may have heard that.
