i posted a while back when my female veiled (6-7 mos old) started to all of a sudden "hate" me, and you all provided some useful tips regarding more leaf coverage, hand-feeding treats, etc. thank you!
the story continues: tulip does not HATE me so much anymore, she does not run to the bottom of the cage and turn dark when she sees me now, but she is not her "happy colors" when i am around. and i am around seldom! i try to sneak up on her when i get home from work, peer around the corner and see what she is up to, but as soon as she sees me she gets darker, and stays that way. when i sneak a peek at her she is usually a green & brown pattern, and she is light green & brown (kind of argyle) when she is sleeping. should i worry that she is really stressed out 24/7? when she was a baby she was such a nice green color all the time, before she turned into a angry teenager! ;)
tulip's setup seems just fine based on everyone's comments here over the months, and our vet's and other herp friends' advice. proper temp, lights, humidity, food, plants, cage, etc.
thanks for any advice or thoughts.
p.s. she is also terrified of silk worms, oh well!
