My P. Regius looks big and fat along with some sheen on the cepholathorax. I tried offering crickets but she pounced on one a few times but never ate it. Then I offered 3 smaller crickets but she only ate one. I was told to stop offering until after she molts. I thought I would come here and see what everyone has to say. I'm surprised she hasn't molted yet, it's been like this for a couple weeks now.

My adult female hasn't eaten for a month now. She hasn't moulted but has tucked herself away with an egg sac.

If she's out and about it means she's hungry. She'll go to her hammock and web herself in when she's in premoult.
