I recently got a sling Chaco and it is growing pretty fast! I'm kind of concerened on it's eating habits though. The first day I brought it home I gave it a fairly big cricket, in which the t wrestled it to the ground and ate for a few hours. It's been about 3 weeks since then and the t refuses to eat. The T either sits still and lets the cricket run around the enclosure, or runs away from it.
I've tried smaller crickets. A warmer environment more humidity, but it won't eat. It's burrowing and webbing a lot now but the coloration hasn't faded or gotten duller, so it doesn't seem like it's about to molt. It also sticks it abdomen straight up in the air when it walks, is this normal?

I would upload some pics but im on my iPhone and will have to wait until I can get to my computer.
I'm also new to the forum.
Thanks for reading and in advance for any help given.
