When you move a T to a new tank they just need time to settle down. 2-3 crickets a day is to much cut back on that feeding by 90%, offer 2-3 crickets per week.

Ts have mood phases too so she might stay like this for a while. But she seems to like her hide and be healthy so there's not much else to do but leave her be for a while.

She must like her new home. I believe she's being territorial. I bet you if you were to remove her from the enclosure with a deli cup or some kind of container, you would find she is much calmer. All Ts lose their defensiveness after being removed from where they feel safe.

Plus, the T is a G.rosea, these Ts are known for having mood swings and being wierd.

When i moved my suntiger from her container, she bit a spoon six times, she was being defensive but now she is scared because she has been ripped out of her one and only home >_<

I would feed her something more like 1 large cricket per week. She'll live longer with a smaller diet and she'll become hungrier quicker (especially at the end of the week) which means she'll become more active while she's hunting for food.
