I think one of my Chile's has escaped through an air hole -_-

Its about 5mm long and I can find it anywhere!

How long will it live in the room for without food or water?

Will I ever see it again or will it just curl up under something dark and warm and die?

Yeah it is pretty sad :/

Sooo small though.

He was on top of an exo terra in a film tub so Im hoping hes just crawled inbetween a crack or the lid of the viv...

Guess I wont be drilling anymore holes in the sides of pots from now on :(

you might still find him, they are pretty hardy and as long as he can catch the occasional fly or something, in a few years you might find a 6" adult under your pillow one night :lol2:

True. Not like rosea are mega delicate and need constant temps and humidity to survive. They don't even need too much water, and regularly choose not too eat even when it's offered to them. Just watch where you tread!

My little G.pulchra did exactly the same, she was in a 'braplast' box and got out of the airhole. Luckily I found her 3 days later in the corner of a drawer next to the radiator (I was tearing my hair out looking for her!) Luckily she's had 2 moults since and been re-housed so no re-occurance yet thank god!
Look in all the little dark corners... especially where it'd be warm.
Good luck, hope you find the little 'un x
