I've lost another one...

    one of my A geniculata slings appears to be dead. I added some extra moisture, and its in a dark, quiet place, and I'm hoping for the best, but it looks like a goner. It was fine yesterday... this is my second random sling death. This one was not quite 1/2", and was the bigger of the two I have. the other one is active and eating now, so hopefully its okay.
    This really sucks. a few weeks ago, one of my L parahybana's died randomly, after a successful molt. makes me question if my conditions are right. I've got them all in deli cups, i mist the substrate, and feed them 1-2 crickets a week, depending on the individual T. They are kept in a china cabinet, where it is fairly dark, and they are kept at room temperature, not too warm, not too cold. Are these just random deaths, or am I doing something wrong?
  2. Don't beat yourself up, its random. Well assuming you buy from good breeders. My sling conditions are identical except I used the bottom drawer of my dresser.
