    Hello

    One of my P regius molted sometime in the last 3 days. I was wondering how long I should wait to feed it? I am assuming it has some hardening to do. It has moved around a bit.

    Cheers

    I waited until I saw them out of their hammocks looking for food before trying to feed them. That way you know they're ready.

    Thanks for the advice! I will feed it today as it has been out of the hammock for about a day.

    Guessing yours is only very young then? The good thing with jumpers is that if they're not ready the prey can't get to them to annoy them anyway.
