sometimes they can be a bit unsteady ... usually if scared or trying to scarper from the big pink thing but without seeing how he's moving I can't really say RepBex.
They usually shed anywhere between 2-7 days after hatching and their first poop can easily be missed as it can be a very small grey/greenish/white speck
