Has she just move to a new viv
is she still pooing and if so, do they look normal

no problem will tell as much as i know.
were not sure of age but think somewhere about 4 to 6 yrs old. we think 3 to 4 weeks since she's eaten. doesn't appear to have lost any wieght. been in her viv for six months now. only done one poo in past couple of weeks but looked normal ish. no temerament and behaviour still perfect. not shedding hasn't shed for about four months now. temp is about 32 celc.
hope this helps just getting worried now. thanx in advance

she not on calci sand. previous owner kept her on small bark chips so we thought best to do the same for her. get sinking feeling that might have been bad move though :oops:

hi

Some people hate chips, but personally, for that age leo, its not really a problem, esp as she is used to them.

In the absence of any other issues, all i can think of right now, is the shorter days are convincing her its winter time, so she slows down eating , or that she is feed up with the same foods.

As above, worth trying some alternatives. do u remove the locusts she dont eat? how do you know is is not eating them, sorry if that sounds a silly question.

what size are they, maybe too big or small . may be worth snipping the back legs off in casr they are just to fast for her.
