My G Pulchra which is about 2 1/2-3" has been very jumpy/lethargic and haven't ate in the last two weeks. It's used to be a very good eater and calm T. It also doesn't look like it'll be molting soon. Should I be worried?



Thanks in Advance

Jumpy and lethargic?

It could be premolt. Pulchras conceal their up coming molts pretty well, but dulled senses can be a sign of an upcoming molt. Their jumpiness can be from those dulled senses as well caused by the newly forming exo. Not accepting food is another premolt sign as well. Guess you will just have to wait it out and see. It does not sound like there is anything wrong though. Not yet at least.

Can you describe the jumpy and lethargicness? Like what exactly is it doing?

Like for example I'll just open it's enclosure, or accidently bumped onto something and it's running from corner to corner. Weird thing is it hasn't used it's hide since I noticed it's odd behavior.

here's a pic I took earlier today

It probably just gets startled from the bumping and/or opening. From that picture your T looks perfectly healthy!

Oh that means your a good T parent haha.:D We all worry from time to time. Do you think you'd be able to get one more picture of it though, ventral?
