So we bought a G.Maule sling at the end of June as a gift for our daughter who loves spiders. When we got her she was in the little pill bottle like vial and would never turn down a meal, she also had just recently molted when we bought her. We rehoused her and ever since she has been a terrible eater, she has only eaten a handful of times since July that I know of, she started running away from crickets and would only take they feel I took of the legs first, she doesn't even seem to want those anymore so I bought some very small dubia roaches to try and she hasn't eaten the two that are in her enclosure (the one has been in for about a week and the other a few days because I thought she had eaten the first). She seems plenty plump so I'm guessing I shouldn't be too concerned but I'm a worry wart. I thought she might be premolt because her abdomen looked pretty dark and fat at one point but I haven't witnessed her molting nor seen any exo from her. She's has the leg span maybe as wide as a quarter. Her sub doesn't hold much moisture so I use a syringe every few days to lightly moisten it and she has a water dish. How often should she be molting and is there maybe something I'm doing wrong that may be causing her to not want to eat?
