    I got fluffy about 2 weeks ago. When I got her, I just thought she was well fed, but she has only eaten two medium size crickets since then and has gotten noticeably bigger. Is it possible to tell if she is gravid from a photo? How about a crappy photo?

    I gave her a cricket today and she came out, killed it and went back to her hide.

    This was a quick snapshot of her as she ran back into her hide. Is it possible she is getting ready to give birth?

    How big is it?

    It kinda looks like a juvenile.
