B.hamorii sling feeding.

I've had a b.hamorii sling for 3 weeks now and was starting to worry as it refused food. I tried live and prekill offerings. Even leaving the prekills in for 48 hrs to give it a chance to scavenge. Tonight I looked in after leaving a prekill in earlier in the day and it had taken the item into its hide and was feeding. Just thought I'd share incase anyone else is experiencing the same.

had the exact same trouble with my B.hamorii it refused any food and then burrowed for 3 weeks. Last night she was out drinking so I tried a flightless fly which she took straight away there was no moult so I assuming its just their way

Second time its fed. Just for record keeping. Even a little sling goes weeks without feeding
1/2" Eupalaestrus campestratus sling went on a 5 month fast then a month of premoult! That is the longest I have seen with a sling. My B klaasi has been holed off in it's hide for 4 going on 5 months!

Not a sling, but my 3.5" curly hair ate once in my care, then burrowed and haven't seen it since. But its winter here. I'm hoping to see more of everyone when it warms up a bit

I am lucky that all my juvie/adults just hang out up top all the time. Except my A calchodes that has a huge tunnel at the bottom of it's enclosure. And my T albopilosum has some cool tunnels that it retreats to when disturbed. But it's always up top unless I pick it's enclosure up :)
