I bought my G Pulchra sling Eclipse almost 2 weeks ago and yesterday I took her out of her hide to check on her since she blocked the entrance half way and she hasn't gone back in an hasn't eaten a thing since I got her. Room temperature should be ok I think. Just worried a bit for her lol.

Hi if the sling blocked itself in or webbed up the entrance of the hide then could be in premolt and would not recommend disturbing it . Slings tend to molt more frequently and sometimes refuse food till they do .

Mine is doing the exact same thing. Just got it, wouldn't eat and blocked up it's burrow. Sometimes I think a prefeed before shipping or the stress can trigger a moult. Don't worry! Excellent name.
