Hi Jürgen

My male doesn't eat since 2 weeks. He is the whole day in the deeper Area of the terrarium (the terrarium ist 2.20 meter high), where it isn't so warm (25 degrees). The female ist the whole day high in the terrarium, where the temperatures are 30-34 degrees. The female is now 10 gramms more since i take them from you. The male has the same weight since i'm take him from you. What could i make? Is the female the problem? Coult it be, that she don't let him up in the terrarium?

De first days the male eat normal. Now i think he doesn't eat.

Hi Sami,
you should put him up in the branches, near the female.
If she attacks him, than you need to separate them, remove the female if neccessary.
greetings
Jürgen

Hi Jürgen

Thanks for your Answer. At the moment he eat better. Sometimes they habe some trouble and i think they bite them a little bit, but not realy heavy.

The male have now 8 gramms more.

So i think it works better with them.

Could it be, that the male think, the female is also a male because of de blue lines?

Hello,
when I look at your new pictures, then I am sure that the female will bite him and she is the reason why he does not eat so much.
You should offer him some more insects from the tweezer, like zophobas, waxworms or locust or maybe cockroach.
Then he will get more weigh soon and even dominate the female!
The bands ob the females are not the reason.

regards
Jürgen

Hi Jürgen

Thanks for your answer. We feed him since two weeks with the tweezer with insects and also with some fruits and salat.

Yesterday they lay together for 2 minutes. I think he slowly get more weigth.

Okay, i look for more insects with more fat like zophobas...
