I bought this Avic about 6-8 weeks ago. I got it unsexed & appx. 3". It was VERY inexpensive, so I was a bit surprised, but I tried not to look a gift horse in the mouth & just be grateful. I did notice that "her" abdomen was very, very skinny, however, the seller couldn't tell me when she had molted last. I set about to get her fattened up ASAP but had about a 2 week learning curve where she wouldn't take prey at all; either from tongs, the floor, live, dead, roaches, crickets, red runners, etc. I finally got her to eat & found out how & what she would accept from me. Now shes eating 1 LG r.runner per week, but not gaining any weight. She spends a LOT of time upside down on the lid of her plastic enclosure or JUST peeking out of her vertical log, so I can't always get the best look at her top/rump. A few days ago, I noticed white flecks/flakes covering her backside/legs. I've read so much about mites & that they are mostly harmless, but my concerns are this: she is very "slow" (compared to my other morph 1 Avic), she isn't an aggressive eater, she isn't gaining weight, etc. Could these mites be negatively affecting her? I went ahead & put a pill bottle with TINY holes, Vaseline & a dying roach in the bottom of her enclosure to draw them off. Should I do more? Should I worry? I have more pics if needed. Sorry for long post! Thanks in advance!
