Hi!
Please list all the details about your enclosure: temperatures, uvb bulb and what you are feeding. That’s what the people on here will need to know to help you figure out what is going on.

Boy she is tiny-- as stated by the other poster we need to know what your using for a UVB NO coils - NO colored bulbs NO Daytime basking bulbs please -- you want a CLEAR bright white basking bulb-- what are your basking temps and how are you taking them -NO stick ons please you need a digital probe thermometer to get surface basking temps 105-110

What are you using for a UVB ? this is crucial and I am posting a nutrition website for you ignore the kale thing its a good staple feeder
Nutrition Content
what are your basking temps? take the probe set it on the spot where she basks wait 10 min or so get the temp it needs to be 105-110
zoo med reptile basking light is this a CLEAR bright white basking bulb no off white or yellowish bulb NO Daytime bulb please they have a neodymium coating which is a rare earth mineral, decreases the CRI or Color Rendering Index which affects the overall brightness. It does this by
cutting the yellow color range out to make it appear brighter but since reptiles are very sensitive to light & can see more of the spectrum than we can it is best to use a bright white light for basking instead.

Hello,

It is a little hard to tell, but are the fingers or toes a little swollen?
Can you post a few pictures of the tank for us, to show the lighting placement, etc? Is your UVB light a tube bulb or a compact/
coil type of light?
For now you can get some bee pollen to help with appetite until we can get your setup reviewed. She needs some nutrition so if
you can get some chicken or turkey baby food mixed with squash or sweet potato baby food to feed to her that would help.
