So my GBB sling molted Sunday (its weds today), it about 1 1/2 inches, (I've had it about a month so I'm still learning its habits) last night it was perched up looking a bit like a hunting pose and today it's a bit jumpy and dancing around a little bit (this has usually meant its hungry)... is it too soon to feed it? I usually feed crickets, but was going to get some roaches to feed right now (if I feed) because I feel like they're a bit safer for the freshly molted t

Its so little I can hardly see its fangs right now (and it likes to keep them covered) 😔, should I just go with my original thought of a full week? I know it wont starve in those few days but I feel bad if its acting hungry 😂😂

If you can't see, give it a week to be safe.

At that size I wait 5 days after moulting before attempting to resume feeding.
