Yeah I’d rehouse the LP just my preference though as it could stay in that for another moult.Update on Smithi, still soft, can tell by looking at him. I hope he is ok. I will try the method Andrew explained to me in a week or so. I want him to harden up.
Can I leave a prekill in his enclosure so long?
Also these little beetle type things, I got them with my roaches I bought a month ago. Just ignored them, but there's quite a few and very small. Can I feed them to my slings?
Yeah you’re smithi is still quite soft I wouldn’t risk it as the old exoskeleton doesn’t look to be obstructing it in any way so you can let it harden before soaking the old skin to loosen it off ,what @Jess S said may be right it does look to just be stuck on the patch of urticating hair so it should be pretty easy to remove when it comes the time.
The beetles you get in with crickets are from the Dermestidae family (Skin Beetles) they start as little furry maggot sized worms, you can feed them to you’re slings but I have found not many slings will entertain them 1 of my 2 H sp Cameroon slings take them and the other just totally refuses and others it’s just a hit and miss. Also yes pre killed can be left in but I wouldn’t leave it any longer than 48 hours at very most as it will start to rot and attract mould. Best just pre killing and leaving 24 hours then remove and wait again a few days and try the same again when offering pre killed
