    Aw, that's too bad. But I guess he's growing up & figures that he is the king of his castle. I hope you can work out a truce? But as you say, gloves on!

    Re: Ferry - Rhacodactylus Chahoua (Chewie)

    Here is a video of Ferry attacking my gloves to protect his home.




    Here is Ferry 3 seconds later, calm and sweet as can be, out of his home .

    Re: Ferry - Rhacodactylus Chahoua (Chewie)

    Wanted to update on Ferry.

    He's been gobbling down his insects, but hasn't touched his gel food in a couple of weeks. He was sporadic before that for a bit in the winter, but I am getting a little worried.

    He looks fine and is acting normal otherwise.

    Any thoughts from Rhaco keepers?

    I am guessing it's a seasonal thing and he'll get back to it. In the meantime, I gut load his insects and put calcium on every feed (2-3X a week he gets insects) and multivitamin 1X a week. Just as I've always done.

    I did some digging and may have answered my own question.

    I upped the temps a few degrees this morning. I went from 75F on the basking spot to about 79F on the basking spot. The tank overall warmed up a couple of degrees. I'll see if this stimulates him to eat his gel.

    I can go up to about 81-82F comfortably with him and still a few degrees of margin of error. Chewie's can go to about 85F in the summer, but not much more. I believe Leachies are a little more sensitive. Ezzy is about 75F all year round and eats like a pig.

    I have also upped humidity recently for both Rhacos. That seemed to have little effect on Ferry.

    I hope that works- I have a hunch that it will.
