its unreal! i cant beleive itOriginally posted by Lostkat
My 2" geniculata took about 4 days to harden after a moult. I'd leave yours for a week to be on the safe side though. They really do grow ALOT when they moult don't they
she locked herself up in her hide she and the shed skin is still in her hide >_< im gonna have to wait till she goes out of her hide i just hope she doesnt destroy it....Originally posted by caligulathegod
Provided it does't disturb her, I can't see why you couldn't go ahead and get the shed skin out. I had to remove my T's shed skin because it interfered with her stretching out fully (she was completely free of it but everytime she'd try to stretch she felt it and recoiled).
yea how long would u live a 3 inch sling before feeding it?Originally posted by Nixy
The first feeding I use after a moult is a cricket that has had it's jump legs removed and is wounded, or stunned.
To stun and wound I ussualy give they're heads a pinch. Not enough to kill it but enough to make it twitch spasticly to atract
I've noticed that the moulted don't much mind if the cricket is a little dead when they get to it.
They just want the munchies.
But I guess it depends on the T too and it's preferances.
Mine don't care, they go in and munch it up wiggling or not.
well she was eating like a pig when i first got her but she hasnt eaten in like a week now and shes just shed so shes gonna have to wait until monday till i feed herOriginally posted by Nixy
Give her four or five days, At Least.
If she gives you a chance to see them look at her fangs.
Black is good, white is bad, reddish brown is right between.
If your really scared shes not hard enough to kill prey but still afraid she Needs to eat.
Chop her a cricket up and put it on a flat lid like a plate for her.
But she'll be fine in a few days and up and mangling crickets on her own.
