well, was feeding most of the collection last night. and found that my purpurea never took a small prekilled cricket i had put in there a few days prior. opened up the lid- which opens very roughly, comes off kind of like velcro- and started to pick at the crik with tongs. sling just sat there next to cricket and didnt react at all. i thought it was perhaps a upright molt and placed the lid on top and left it overnight. that was about 18h ago. im pretty sure it died for some reason, whether disturbed molt or whatever, im not sure. sub was very dry with a water dish. vent was good, etc. etc.
