She needs to be separated from the male, and probably the other female too, she is tiny and needs feeding up and looking after well

Is the other female the same?

Yes, all 3 of them are same size. The pic was taken with my mobile but not sure if that would have any affect?

Its a lot bigger than it looks then so it may well be what it was sold as and could possibly be gravid or just going through the motions just doesnt look it in that pic

If you can pick her up and turn her over in light can you see any shapes of eggs in her abdomen?

Yes she has eaten today but not sure how much. I saw her take at least 1 hopper but I haven't sat there studying so not sure if she's had more.

Oh bloody hell, I'm worrying now, lol

Hmm I would still separate them as she really does look small and even if the weight loss is from laying eggs then she needs a break from the male to regain her weight and health

Just tried that. She certainly doesn't like being turned over, lol.

But as far as I can see, NO! can't see any egg shapes.

She's happy enough but returns to the same part of the Viv every time I move her
