Sorry, then in english...

The 1.1 are safely arrived in there new home.
The female is very active and eats shredded carrots from my fingers, i was suprised.
I´m a little bit nervous about the male, he sits or hangs in a plant and is still holding back. Is this normal?
I´ve offered every day different diets, cucumber, zucchini, kiwi, lettuce, carrot, carrot leaves, basil. It did not look as if the two have eaten something from the cups...

Maybe i´m a to worry about it, but...

greets

Steffen

Which kind of insects do you give your fidschis? I have heard a theory that crickets can make the fidschis ill - so that it is better only to give them locusts.

What do you think about it and how do you handle it?

The male eat insects from the twezzer and after that he eats carrot and other green. But only from the twezzer and not from container with green.

The female don´t eat insects from the twezzer and i haven´t seen her eaten green. Only the second day, carrot from my finger, but that´s been a while.

Hello,
let them have a little bit more time, because you got them 2 weeks agon!
Normally after 4-6 weeks they will settle down and start feeding.
After a few month they will feed normally.

Greetings
Jürgen
