don't panic!!

HIa,

Hannah here. I know how you feel about the rankins not eating much but I really wouldn't stress too much.

My li'l female rankin doesn't eat very much but she now an then has a little feeding session when she feels like it.

She could be eating when your not around...some females get a complex ya know!! :)

I find mine are a little picky and will not eat a huge amount of fruit and veg, they mainly stick to mustard greens and a grape now and then.

One day they turn their noses up at a nice juicy wax worm and other days they are in the pot before i can put a worm out for them...peculiar little things....anyway, just don't panic and just be patient with them, aslong as they are active and growing healthily then i hope there is no problem!

Han
