You mean the Q-tip with the red stuff on it? Actually, i already tried this morning when i was trying to get dressed, dogs fed, etc while worried about my T. The flash made the whole Q-tip white in the pic but i will try tomorrow and take it outside so i don't need a flash. i can tell you that the color of the fluid on the Q-tip did darken up in the hours after i swabbed the T - just like normal blood...Just to amuse us can you take a picture of the red stuff? I am miffed now.
Yes, i just received him (i believe...) on Tuesday. He did not appear to have any injuries when i received him and i got a much better look at him than i was able to on a couple of others that came. There were 5 good size T's all shipped overnight and all are eating and seem to be well.to the original poster: you said that you recently acquired her. did you fully inspect her after the purchase/shipment was received to see if she had any injuries?
i doubt the person i purchased this T from used color enhancing food/crickets and i know i haven't.See the thing that doesn't work with injuries is that T's don't have red blood.
Ok I have a thought now, there was a thread here a couple days ago about feeding food colored fish flakes or whatever to your crickets and then enhancing the Ts colors. What if this T ate prey that was injected or fed some kind of red food coloring product, thus turning it blood red. I know it's way out there, but it's just a thought.
Yeah, that is weird... What is that red stuff on your T if it isn't blood??? :? Does anyone know? The red fluid on my T looked kind of like serum, it was kind of transparent but definitely RED...Me personally I am miffed to, but if you remember the photos of my recent Smithi male that had a bad molt there was much more red the I ever would have thought possible.
