    I love the way she sees food & licks her lips while approaching. Even then she still pokes & tests it before grabbing...that's just adorable! Glad her appetite
    has returned.

    Re: Finally - 5 years late: An introduction to Cleo, Carra, and Kayla

    Cleo continues to gobble down hornworms. She does not seem to have the zest she used to when eating. I am unsure whether that's because she isn't really interested in food right now, but likes the hornworms, and they don't move fast, or if something else is going on.

    I plan to get a poop sample to the vet ASAP, but she hasn't had a good poop since she started eating again earlier this week. Some urine and urate, and I tiny bit of poop, but I am hoping for something I can send in.

    Re: Finally - 5 years late: An introduction to Cleo, Carra, and Kayla

    More good news. I checked on Cleo today and she was eating her mealworms. I only put three in there as she also had two big hornworms last night, but sure enough 2 mealworms gone. I offered Dubai tonight and we will see. However, the mealworms are a big step. She has always liked them, and although she loves hornworms and wax worms, it's good she's eating her staple, or at least part of it. She has always eaten mealworms and Dubai as her main diet.

    Anyway, I do not want to jinx it and still plan on sending in a poop sample, but I thought it was a good sign and wanted to share.

    Good news! Maybe she had a stomach "bug" & has self-cured? Who knows?

    I few thoughts.

    1. I did give her some Nutribac last week. Maybe that helped?

    2. She has a big fat tail and I would not want her gaining any more weight. I've heard they are somewhat aware of that, and can fast when they don't need food.

    3. Maybe something did bother her, but she didn't eat for long enough that her stomach shrunk? Now that she's eating, she's also getting hungry again?

    Let us know when she tells you which one it is?

    Re: Finally - 5 years late: An introduction to Cleo, Carra, and Kayla

    I won't say she's pounding food, but Cleo is definitely eating again. 4 mealworms in the other day and 1 mealworm left yesterday. Last night I put in Dubai and mealworms and we will see. She seems more interested in the mealworms of late. That's fine. They are both gut loaded and I add calcium 3X a week and vitamins 1X a week.

    Re: Finally - 5 years late: An introduction to Cleo, Carra, and Kayla

    Cleo seems back to her old self.

    She's wiggling her tail in excitement when I put food in and goes right after it. She's preferring mealworms right now, but is eating Dubai roaches as well. Either is fine. I have a ready supply of both and gut load both and calcium 3X a week and vitamins 1X.

    She looks great and is still a pleasure. Most of the time, she comes out to see me when I open the enclosure.

    I am relieved.
