I am just curious as to whether or not my red clawed emperor's behavior is normal. First, he hasn't eaten in like 2 1/2 weeks. He ate fine when i got him for like 3 weeks and now he wont eat. Second, he never comes out of his little hideout. If he does it's between like 2am and 7 am. Any other time, he is never out, and third, he has gotten really aggressive since I have had him. Everytime I even go near the cage now he ready's himself for war. If I move his little bark thang to get the crickets out he goes crazy and runs after my hand and trys to claw me to death. before he never would even bother he would just sit there and only get aggravated if I messed with him specifically. I am just wondering if my little killer is acting normal, or maybe if he may be approaching a molt perhaps. He is not fully grown. I am just inquiring because the not eating has got me. The humidity and how hot it is isnt the reason, it is the same tempature and humidity when I first got him and he was eating then, so that isnt it. thnx for the help anybody. Appreciate it.
