    Hey guys i just took in the girl today and she is in my opinon skinny. I feed her two large crickets and got her some water. I will be setting her up in a much better enclosure tomorrow (this is the one they gave her to me in). How should I feed her to help her bulk up?

    Ah ah, careful into opening too much that little, kinda T's 'Expo', 'enclosure' :angelic:

    Tomorrow offer to the bugger lots of inches of substrate (substrate should be moist, not wet) and a water dish. If you can, add a piece of wood like cork bark or similar. Start a pre hole nearby that piece of wood, often is a really appreciated kindness.

    Skinny but not so skinny, they remain on the somewhat 'slim' side, they don't turn so chubby like 'genics' and the others.

    Just toss a couple of crickets in with her every few days until it starts putting on more weight then do a few crickets every other week or so.

    I’d say first thing get her in something with a bunch of substrate, mine love to dig deep. She should start eating when she settles in, give her some time.
