  1. We encourage you to post these pet related things: pictures, habitats, questions, and anything else pet related.
  2. The Critter Forum is for all ages.  Absolutely no adult content. Users will be banned and reported.
  3. Be kind.  Everyone here wants to learn, and become better care givers for their pets.  Help others by sharing tips, knowledge, products, and tutorial videos.
  4. Be respectful of other people’s opinions and ideas. It’s okay to disagree and have different opinions, but present your case tactfully.  Everyone here wants the same thing: good health and happiness for their pet.
  5. No brigading or trolling.  Everyone wants to be an amazing pet-parent.  Rude remarks, trolling, and brigading doesn't encourage this, and discourages everyone from participating and learning.
  6. All posts must be relevant to the selected category.  For example, don’t discuss corn snakes on the bearded dragon category.
  7. All threads that are nothing but a ‘test’ or an ‘ad’ will be deleted.
  8. If you share irrelevant links, your comment or post will be deleted.  If the links are relevant to the thread, that’s fine. Please use your best judgment here.
  9. Please don’t use affiliate links in this forum. When you externally link, do it because you want to help someone, not because you see a quick opportunity to make some cash.
  10. Try to add value when you post. Don’t just type something along the lines of “What they said.”
  11. Use proper grammar to the best of your ability. We understand that English may not be everyone’s main language, but make an attempt. You won’t get in trouble for a misplaced comma or for typos, but it would help everyone if you could make sure everyone understands your message.

I presume it's a female because of the lack of nodules on its hands. She is roughly a year old or so now. Until recently she has been very good about eating, pooping, etc. I feed her a diet of nightcrawlers, occasional crickets, and a tiny pinky mouse about once every month- 2 months, all food dusted in calcium powder. Over the last month and a half she has barely eaten and spends almost all her time underground. I'm puzzled because I truly don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Her tank during the day time stays between 75-81°F during the day and about 68-70°F at night. I keep the tank humidity between 60 and 70, almost always more near the 70s because I know how important humidity is for them. I even got a mister and keep it pointed at her if she's out so she stays getting misted throughout the day. Currently she's in a 10 gallon bioactive tank set up with biodude substrate with bioshot, golden pothos in the corner, a little log in the other corner for her to hide under, and some springtails and isopods for cleanup crew. I keep my heat lamp on one side so she can choose the heat and light as she pleases. She doesn't look underweight, although I'd like to pack a little more on her if possible. She doesn't seem to have pooped in a good while and just isn't interested in food. I've already checked to see if she's impacted and she doesn't appear to be. No red spots on the belly or legs. Everything appears to be fine. I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
