I purchased an adult emp a few weeks ago and usually i would hear him at night trying to climg the glass, but now hes just hiding under a broken flower pot thing that i made him. he doesnt climb the glass at night anymore, and tonight i put in a cricket but im not sure if her ate it or not because i left the top of my tank half open to cover his tank with a towel. im not sure if the cricket jumped out or not but anyway, hes just not active at all and i think im doing everything right

i mist daily, he has a water dish, pretty deep bedding, temperature is usually around 79 - 86 F, i try to have him covered with a towel most of the day because i usualy have bright light on in my room... am i missing something?

is this normal behavior for an adult emp??

yeah sounds right to me. Mine have burrowed and I havent really seen them at all in 2-3 weeks. They never come out of the burrow, even at night..

A happy emp is an emp you may never see. they tend to hide alot and wait for food to come to them. or at least mine do that.
