Harpactira pulchripes

Tried to get a pic while she was still out on display after i opened the enclosure...😐
Nice! How big is your girl and what are you feeding her at the time? My mum's got a new HP sling who's only an inch, and despite not being in premolt, has been on the shy side with feeding. It's been afraid of pinhead crickets and even flightless fruit flies; not scavenging prey for over a month. What have you been feeing girl as well when she was younger? I'm quite admiring the growth she has in your picture! Nice husbandry!

Thanks! Now she's like 2"/2.25". I have a blapta lateralis and a mealworms colony and i give her an appropriate sized prey of those, for the mealworms i crush their heads just to be sure and the red runners i just live them like that. Unless she was in premolt, she's always had a big appetite, even the first day I've got her i tried to give her a small cricket and she jumped right on it. When I've got her she was approximately .75". She was eating small crickets or appropriate sized pieces of mealworms. So i guess you just have a picky one. Also with every molt mine is become less shy, she stays out on display even during the day now, so probably with time yours will become less picky as well.
