I have a female N. levis levis who doesn't seem to be growing. I've had her since August and I got her with a male. The male is growing at a normal rate, but the female still hasn't passed 3 grams....I feed her crickets daily dusted in calcium w and w/out D3 and multi-vitamins...I'm just wondering why she isn't growing. She is also eating... Thanks in advance.

Hi,
do you have pics both ?

I guess you keep them seperated ?
Did you check for parasites?

Best,

Sebastian

I keep them seperated, the temps are at 86F. I haven't checked for parasites but I haven't seen any runny poo that normally indicates parasites. Maybe I'll take a sample to the vet as soon as I can.

I would really take her to a good herp vet, that does not sound right at all. I have a female levis that Ive had since Sept, She started out at 4g and now weighs 15g! I also got a pair the male started out at 3g and is now 8g. How big is the male? How many crickets are you feeding and how often?

The male is probably 10-12 grams. I feed about 6 crickets a day (1/2 grown) and she usually eats all or most of them.
