How long have they been inactive?

I have a few and they tend to disappear during the day and come out at night. They will also bury themselves if you have gravel or sand substrate, to the point you'll think they have disappeared.

I've read they can go inactive for days at a time, though mine are so hard to find I can't really verify that.

It's hard to tell when they actually died. With their constant burrowing habits, who would know easily how? You'd have to dig them up and inspect if they are still alive.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
