My Chile rose, goes through times of not feeding, last time she didnt eat was for a month or so, like nicky said they are notorious for fasting, Why? I dont know? summat they do I suppose. They will usually stop feeding pre-moult, which you can usually tell by the bold patch on the abdomen. I dont think its anything to worry about though. Just one other thing, 2.5 inches for a 3year old Chile rose seems a bit small to me.

It is common for Chile rose to go for months without food, if she was eating fine before this fasting period, I wouldn't worry too much about it. How often do you feed your T?

Try feeding het one of those green grasshoppers. Most of the times when the grasshoppers are very active they will hunt them. If not, maybe it is to dry, or to wet. Or to warm or to cold.
