Hey all,
My Spinigerus has stopped eating and I'm getting concerned. It molted two or three weeks ago and the temps in my room have dropped to about 75 F because of the changing weather. I've tried both crix and dubias but it doesn't seem to recognize either as food. What should I try to get it eating again, or is this a normal fast period?
Thanks

how big is your V. Spinigerus? Maybe he/she is still not hungry or preparing for a molt again. hehe..

I wouldn't worry unless it starts to lose weight. Were this species is wild they go through all kinds of temp changes during the year. For large parts of the year they might not have many options to feed.

thanks for the advice. It's about 2 cm not including the tail. How often should I try to get it to feed without getting it getting stressed.
