Does your A. geniculata eat pinkies?

First off, I don't offers my t's pinkies on a regular basis, it's more of a once in awhile thing. Please, I'm not here to debate whether or not one should feed t's pinkies, and I know that 8 crickets is both equivalent to a pinkie and cheaper in price.

I'm aching to know if your A. geniculata eats pinkies, because mine have refused them everytime! All my geniculatas at some point in time have refused pinkies. Surena told me to offer them prekilled pinkies. What are your thoughts and experiences? Have any of your genics eaten pinkies? Or is it something about this species..?

Thanks!

Both my genics will eat pinkies, they are on a steady diet of roaches now that my colony is established though....

I gave my genic a F/T pinkie once, she ate it with no problems.

My genic has eaten a pinkie, it was a small mouse pinkie, and his first after moult meal, and he ate the entire thing with gusto. I'm not sure he would eat that much at one time if he hadn't just moulted though. He does eat quite a bit, but at his own pace. He goes through 4 to 6 crickets but he takes his time hunting them, and usually has them for a couple of days. I wouldn't generally feed him a pinkie just because I'm sure he wouldn't eat the whole thing.

I am sure my genic would eat my pinky if I were foolish enough to stick it in the enclosure........{D

Seriously, mine is still a juvie and I haven't tried to feed it one, although I might after its next moult.
