    Dear, stop feeding it so much. Make sure your baby has a full water dish, a nice hide and deep enough sub to burrow in. Keep the water dish full and don't feed! Wait a few days. 5 or so. Then feed one small prey item. If it doesn't take in in a couple hours remove it and wait again. 4-5 days.
    As kormath said, if it's molted recently don't disturb or feed for a while! If you feed to early you can seriously damage their fangs.

    My sons golden knee just started doing something very odd, a behavior I've not seen. I am not new to T keeping however she is our first golden knee.
    She is hanging on the wall of her terrarium with her abdomen sticking out at a 90degree angle.
    I'm pretty certain that there isn't anything wrong, she just ate healthily yesterday but am perplexed as to what this behavior means.
    I tried to add a photo but don't know how (I'm using an iPad)

    Sorry for the late reply, is she still doing this? Could she be stuck?

    sounds like the butt raised defensive posture to make themselves look bigger to other predators. Is there prey in the enclosure with it?

    some of my smaller slings, like Satin the G. pulchra and Buddha the G. rosea would do this going into premolt if there was a roach in their enclosure.
