    Hi Jen 1302

    My chile is off her food at the moment and sulking in her flowerpot, hasnt been out in days apart from once to get a drink.She was drinking for about 5 minutes or so. I'm going to try her with food again today but I expect she'll just kill it and dump it at the end of her tank again. She's fascinating to watch though WHEN she comes out LOL.

    I went and bought an artificial stem of leaves yesterday and cut off the leaves and made a small plant for my chile rose. Now I have to get her a bigger tank LOL. It cost me £1-99 and I can make 6 plants out of it easily, much cheaper than buying ready made ones in the shops ( if you can find any that size). Here's a pic of it.

    My Chilli does that sometimes by killing the crickets and dropping it in corner majority of the time.

    Sometimes she'll go back for it and other times she doesn't which is when i remove killed/eaten/uneaten within 24hrs.

    She stalks her food.

    Mine has started eating again. I'm giving her slightly smaller crickets rather than the really big ones.

    Mine will eat about 4-6 black crickets some times she doesn't i tried her with silk worms which she didn't like i was told to try super worms or wax worms.

    As she's picky with her food as for the sil worms i bought she had two and that was it so ended up with a load of them could say they were pets lol now moths.

    I was going to get a curly hair but ended up with a Mexican Red Rump instead. He's always digging. Every morning his home looks different. My chili is off her food again. She did'nt eat on Monday so I'm leaving her until next Monday and will try again. How is y our little curly hair Jen?

    Could be its just getting used to its new home. My GBB has only eaten once since I got it onn 13th Feb. It came from the same batch as both of my daughters GBBs' and theirs have both moulted so maybe mine will soon too. As for Fangharad, the chile rose, she is hiding in her pot again and off her food again but she's fine.

    Fangharad my chile is off her food again. She eats well for a couple of weeks then takes a break. Just as well at the moment, none of the crickets I have are big enough for her at the moment.

    At the mo my Chili Rose is going all around the top of the viv feeling for gaps in the lid, even caught her last night upside down on lid trying to push glass out and still at it.

    So i'm on hold putting fresh flooring in for her:confused:
