So after weeks of her hiding away and me thinking she’s either ill or in semi brumation , a visit to the vet various food changes changed substrate etc etc. We changed her uv tube to the t5 and hey presto she comes out :) I thoroughly recommend these t5 uv tubes absolutely no flicker [Click image to enlarge]

T5 UVB lighting is excellent and almost always worth the investment =)

Hello,

I completely agree! :D The T5 tubes are excellent & have such a great quality & overall
brightness to them.

It doesn’t appear as bright as the previous tube though. And she has gone back to hiding under cave and only eating 2-3 locusts per day. I give up and just let her do her own thing. Veg seems to go but not sure if she’s eating it or it’s just wilting. I work 12 hour shifts and unless hubby or daughter are home she’s left alone. Could that be the problem maybe lonely ? Do they even get lonely ? 😳

No they dont get lonely they are mainly a loner creature but do like the attention - it could be shes doing the semi brumation thing -- as long as shes not losing weight -- can you weigh her and keep track of her weight? Mine has been horribly lazy and not eating much either - just keep offering her bugs and her vegies ---- she will eat if shes hungry- make sure shes hydrated - either by giving her a bath or drip water on her nose to see if she will lick it off-

Yes her weight is steady I keep a record. lost a few grams before we changed her uv tube. I’ve just been informed by hubby she has been out from under the cave for a few hours this morning :) I give her a bath once a week and spray her and the fake plants daily. She licks the drops off the leaves

Ok good then shes getting water--- I wouldnt worry to much about her then --- just give her lots of cuddles they like to cuddle and they like soft things like fleece blankets etc.... just follow her lead and keep an eye on her she should be fine - any behavior changes etc you can always ask here again - we have Tracie Drache613 as a vet moderator and others on here that are well equipped w/ answering med questions as well

Thank You. Can you put fleece in the vivarium or will it catch fire ?

You can put it in her hide /cave -- and no it shouldnt catch fire if its away from bulb - you wouldnt wanting touching the bulb -- where do you have her hide is it under the basking bulb - I have Hiccups on the other side of the tank so there is no heat on the fleece--

She has 2, 1 each end but prefers the 1 under the basking bulb. Putting fleece under there sounds good idea as I’m home next 2 days I’ll try it while I can watch for overheating. Thank You. :)
