I have 2 HL's and they have been good for a while but i have noticed that lately they have been very lazy. they just lay down and not do much. they eat but not as much as normal. they eat about 10 small crikets a day. and we have been getting harvester ants and when we get them they used to get a lot of them. and now we get them they dont eat much of them. about half of what they used to. we keep extra cricks in there for when they get hungry. we mist them about 1-2x a week. sometimes more. we dont get harvester ants as often as we should because they cost alot and its hard to keep up to date when you have to get them through mail. (i'm not cheap, just costing more then i thought. but i love them)
i'm just worried. i had one HL die because of not eating. but they do get out and movie around. anyone have any ideas? the temp in the cage is about 100F in the day and about 70F at nights.
