    Question Leia's behavior


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everyone,
    My girl, Leia, she has been acting a bit strange. She has been really active (which is a good thing), pooping sporadically- although lately I've noticing that she is going even though she hasn't been wanting food at all. I have tried every type of insect: Dubias, Crickets (Leia's favorite), hornworms - which she isn't a fan of but figured to try, mealworms and superworms. I know this time of year is breeding season for them so I am not sure if that is what is the cause or something else. I have been keeping tabs of her weight which she isn't losing or gaining. Staying the same. Could it be that she is ovulating? I refreshed her hide with Zoo Med's Eco Earth so she can dig + lay eggs if she needs to.

    Here is a photo of her hide thats filled with Eco Earth.

    What worries me is that she hasnt been wanting food for over a month now so its just a bit concerning. Anyone have any idea why she hasnt been wanting food?

    Thanks!

    99% it is. Don't worry. If she isn't losing weight dramatically, it's fine. They sometimes stop eating for months. You can just keep a bowl of mealworms in the terrarium so she can eat a bit when she wants to.
    The Eco Earth is not necessary. That is a really nice hide though, where did you get it?

    Ok thanks. That's what I thought but wanted to double check. I actually put a superworm in her bowl and checked again this morning. I didnt see the worm so either its running loose or she ate it lol I actually got the hide on Amazon. Its called "Zilla Rock Lair". I'll keep continuing leaving food in bowl and her weight.

    Thanks, I'll check the lair.
    It probably escaped, superworms are pretty good at it. Mealworms are more suitable for this purpose.
