Hi
Mine is a bit shy after the rehouse and the last moult.Only webbed a corner of the enclosure and rarely goes on the other side.But is very food orientated atm it is out and about more after her meal while before was only in her burrow. She stopped eating on 15.04 and moulted on 08.05.I gave her 10 days to harden the fangs before I fed her and is once per week I offer food.I take it out in 24 hours too.
I will be more concerned if she drinks as mine didn't untill I put water right in front of her 8 days after her moult and the waterdish was always full in the opposite corner 15 cm away.She just didn't bothergoing out of her hide.
If yours abdomen is not too small I wont worry just keep offering.
My Nhandu Cromatus is very slow to settle after a rehouse and a very finicky eater.She eats then stoppes for few weeks.I think premoult then she eats again and so on.Now she refuses again but think this time it may be moult comming
They are known to be very food motivated like the GBB but there are always exceptions of the norm.
Regards Konstantin
