I think I see a black spot. Looks like it may moult soon, which is why is isn't eating. also, what is the temperature in your room if you have no heat source. They should be kept around 75-82 degrese F.

Well I think it's better if he/she eat before the moult to accumulate more fluid and help to moult.It's good as I say?

Yea I was thinking it lookd kinda fat as well. I would guess its about to molt too. I hear not to feed it for about a week or 2 after the molt. This run true with bigger Ts too?
