    Hi everyone. My P. regalis has not been eating for some time. Ever since I got her, about 8 months ago, she has not been a good feeder. I have only offered crickets so far. There's not much else available where I am besides crickets and worms. Should I be concerned about this? I am starting to think that maybe the cage is too large. Its 20" high X 10" wide X 12" deep. I only recently placed it on its side to give more vertical height and to reduce the ground space so crickets easier to find. Any comments would be great.

    How long do you keep the cricket in her enclosure before you take it out? It can sometimes take arboreals a day or so to hunt it down.

    You haven't told us how large it is. Any idea on age?

    Right. The age is likely around 2 or 3 years. She's pretty big.
