In Reply to: Female not eating... posted by LNell on April 23, 2003 at 14:27:46:

She is a little thin, her ribs are not very visible or anything. I use a water dropper to give her water more often than I would normally because she is not getting any moisture from her food. She use to eat well; she ate dusted crickets but never touched mealworms. When I first got her, she was like she is now. I was thinking it might be the change of scenery (I moved them from a 29 gallon high aquarium to that cage), but I moved them in about 4 weeks ago. Also, she was eating fine for a while when she was first introduced to the 6' cage. She wasn't very outgoing, kind of shy, but she ate.

The temperatures are about 110 at the hot spot and about 85 on the hot side under all the rocks. The cooler side is about 65-75. I have two sets of rocks on each end of the cage, each providing plenty of hiding spots. In the middle, I have a flat rock that she likes to dig and sleep under. She usually has just the front of her head sticking out to look around when she's not sleeping (not very often). This is where she spends most of her time.
