    I'll try to upload video later.

    The cricket was literally on the spiders fangs and wasn't taken. Gollum has been burrowed for about three weeks with no food. How long should I let this go?

    On a side note his little cave is cool as.

  2. I am confused. The title says it isn't eating, so when I click the link, all I get is three pics with no info on the eating issue.

    Sorry I have been doing this from my droid. It's glitchy sometimes. Edited first post
     
  4. If there isn't a sticky on this question.. there should be!

    Your spider could be in premolt. Stop messing with it. It will eat when it's ready. Don't leave crickets in the enclosure.

    How long should I give it? Another week and try again or wait for a sign from the little guy?
     
  6. This species doesn't really have a great appetite to begine with.

    mine always has a great appetite unless it doesnt want to be disturbed,at which time it totally closes off its burrow.
    i'd say its probably in premolt.

    Hopefully if it molts I can actually get ahold of the shed. Anyone ever recovered a good one from a big nasty h lividum before?
