@FlamingBooty i find that the small smaller the enclosure they are in, the more they eat. they are skittish eaters as slings. i keep mine in a 1” square only 3/4” high and they often eat their pre-killed prey more often than they were kept in larger enclosures. mine molts every few months
@ccTroi My other H. chilensis is growing much faster, but I'm starting to question if it is male. I purchased it at the same time at about the same size as this one, but it is just much more fiesty and food-motivated than this one is. It's also in a much larger enclosure now and still doing wonderfully. <3
I'm hoping this one ends up being female due to the slower growth. It is also much calmer than my larger chilensis, even at this size. I haven't had much problem getting it to eat, but it has been fasting now for a while, hopefully due to pre-molt.
