    Banana Bumble Bee & Banana Spider Help Not Eating

    Please let us know full details plus a photo would be helpful ...


    Hot surface spot should be around 90F though ...


    I’ll send you details of the “hairdryer method” of feeding

    get the tapatalk app and post pic through that. How are they set up, what size enclosures, what type of heating sources, how are you controlling the heat, how are you taking temps, what were they being fed at the breeder, how have you attempted to feed so far and the results? Hatchlings usually do best in small tubs, hot spot should be 88-90, ambient temps and cool side should be about 78-80.

    Saw your photo in your gallery. Definitely need to read this one too. Lots of changes need to be made, namely separating the two animals.

    Thank you for the link there was a lot of good info.


    One other problem that I think I have is that both animals are always on the cold side of the tank. Both of them just curl up in a ball.

    One other problem that I think that I is that both snakes do the big yawn like after eating a meal.
