Hi all
This is my keepers journal for Skye my juvenile female GBB.She is with me since 08.04.2020 and of course its bought from @Phil .lol
I collected her with her enclosure .Tyni critter keeper.
Here a quick(not very good) pic of that day

She is a good eater and takes large crickets with gusto .Today was doing few rehouses and I rehoused her too in a slightly bigger critter keeper with better clarity.
She is kept on dry substrate and fed once per week.
Here few pics of her and the new home.

Hi all
A little update. She finally moved out of the top right corner.She has made some dirt curtains and webbing near base of the cork bark and as from this morning she has a nice burrow to retreat to if she feels like it.Sill not offered food since the rehouse.Will gibe her a few more days to settle first before I try as is quite fat and possibly near premolt
Will take few pics later on.

Hi all
Another update.
Skye has been very secretive after her moult.She is chilling in her burrow near the entrance with legs out and don't seem to have been out till tonight.She responds to disturbance by going furder in.Its few more days for first meal but seems she is hungry and waiting for pray to pass.
I am pretty sure she has not had a dring from water bowl only 15 cm away from her .So dropped some water on the web near the entrance few times and it went on the substrate too this time.About 2 hours later it was all scrunched in that corner drinking from the substrate the daft bugger.Anyway she darted back in as soon as I picked the enclosure up.Got a spray bottle and give few shots in that corner of the enclosure to get better drink.
I'm sure once she gets few crickets she will be out and about as my G Pulchripes was same scatty Nelly after her moult and was always hiding
That's all for now.
Thanks for reading
Regards Konstantin
