So I either have the most docile G.Rosea ever or something's amiss. I bought her about a month ago and she hasn't eaten yet (which isn't all that odd for a rose). When I check in on her everyday she's usually in a different spot just sitting there and she moves reflexively when I open the lid. I keep her water bowl clean and full and sometimes I take her out to handle....this is where I'm alittle concerned. Once I get her onto my hand she just sits there, no wandering, no playing the human hand ladder, just sits. I can pet her leg, her carapace, and even her abdomen (I avoid the hairs of course). When I pinch grab her to check if everything below is all peachy it appears it is and she squirms alittle but no major attempts to escape and no baring of the fangs. He abdomen is plump and the size of her carapace thought she's jet black on the under side and there's a black mark on the beginning of her abdomen and her carapace is a rosey color and light brown. Today when I pinch grabbed her I then set her down on me and she her left third leg crossed over the left fourth leg, I assumed this was from the squirming and gently tapped her left third leg off the fourth and it went right back into position. She just sat there and let me do this, no flinching no moving. I put her back in her cage, having to push her legs alittle to get her to go back in. She's really lethargic, is this normal or what?
