When should I start to worry that she's not eating?

Extra info... She measures about 4" snout to vent. I got her with her cage and when I cleaned it I found quite a few dead crickets. Perhaps they got away or perhaps she isn't loving crickets anymore.
If anyone has any idea how long is too long for these lovelies to not eat I would greatly appreciate the feedback.

what's her body condition? can you post a pic? for a nice healthy, chunky young leachie you can go a little while, but for babies you don't want to wait too long. you might consider alternating bugs with repashy til she takes it better?Morelia spilota harrisoni * Liasis fuscus * Liasis mackloti * Liasis mackloti savuensis * Anteresia maculosa * Python regius * Gekko gecko * Rhacodactylus leachianus * Correlophus ciliatus * Blaesodactylus boiviniPost Thanks / Like - 1 Thanks, 0 Likes

I will try to take a photo when she comes out after lights out. Hopefully I'll be able to get a shot. I'm leaving her be for a little while so she won't be traumatized with the move. I was unable to get age or type from the store!!
She doesn't appear to be in poor condition from what I can see.
I removed the food dish to replace it with fresh food and it looks like she checked it out (dirt from substrate on rim)

I got her at a pet store. She'd been there for a while. She's not a baby from the looks of things as I just got another (from a breeder this time) and he's much smaller at 10 months old.
The store said she's GT but that doesn't tell me much. In my efforts to find out more I see there are many different types. Unfortunately I'm not able to see the subtle differences like those more familiar with these guys would. She weighs 96grams

I'll see if she eats tonight. If not I'll give her a big cricket or 2 to see if she takes those. I don't want to put too many and have bitten or have them bury themselves.

My new little guy ate everything the night before, but didn't touch his food last night.
I'm wondering if yours eat all their food all the time or is it normal that they don't every night?
