G. rosea
Just keep its water dish full. Have never seen my rosie drink but doesn’t mean they don’t. Avoid misting the enclosure though...desert species like it dry
That looks like a very plump healthy rosie..very nice specimen. In agreement to what Sue said, it will drink when it needs to provided it has a clean water source 100% of the time :)
You can tell if they're dehydrated because their abdomen will look kind of deflated/shriveled. If it's really bad, their legs may even begin to curl.
She has been acting sluggish. Lately can it be temp.? And she has what looks to be like scars on her legs is that bad.
@semmy juarez some Ts just have natural patterns on their legs that look like scars. as for the sluggish behaviour, perhaps she might be in premolt. unless the temperature is either really hot or really cold i dont think that would be it, generally if you're comfortable so is your T
Would this be the same with my curly hair. It’s grtt cold at night in my room so I put in heater down here. Bcuz my window lets cold air in.
@semmy juarez very cold temps can affect them. Mine tend to go really sluggish in winter and refuse food especially my A Geniculata who likes a tropical climate. Theres a lot of debate about heat pads but some people use them on half the enclosure so the T can move to the other side if it gets too hot. Or maybe just get an electric heater and try to maintain a temp of 65-70 degrees. They are more hardy than you think though and do tend to adapt. A couple of mine retreated to their hides and blocked the entrance which I guess is their way of keeping warm. Don’t worry about them not eating, they can go a while without food
