    When I come home from work tomorrow I will post updated pictures of her butt and all the stuff I use for her treatment. Let me know how i can improve this post. I added a nightly routine that i am doing with her.

    These are the tools I use. This is also updated pictures of her butt as of last night. I cant edit my post anymore (?). I will continue to update you guys. I will be giving her the first meal today. Im nervous but we will see how it goes.

    Okay i can do that :)

    Little update: I am still doing treatments on Boots. I have tried feeding her and she strikes at the cricket but does not actually get it. I can't tell if she is striking to protect herself or not because she stands up tall looks like she is in threat posture it could just be because she is still wonky from the molt and catching it is hard. Really hard to tell. I did put her cork bark diagonal is in her normal set up and she has been doing great in that.

    Good to read she's doing okay. Refusing food could also be because it is too early to feed yet ;)

    I was thinking that too but her fangs have been black for days now. Ill leave her be a couple days and see!

    Boots ate!!!! She took the cricket finally like she normally does. Now we wait...

    Little update! Boots is doing great! She has had three crickets since. There is no signs of poop that i have seen but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. She does not have any weird bloating or swelling in her abdomen. She is active and webbing. Very glad top see her doing well! She still has the weird look to her but overall she is seems okay. I stopped doing to treatments since she would get so stressed.
