    Hello! I have a (presumably) male krisitins spinytail who i’ve owned for over a year and two months now. when i recently got him i was having issues with eating but up until now, he wasn’t as bad.

    he used to eat every second night, from 2-4 crickets but has not eaten since the 20/09/20. this is really out of character for him. i’ve tried tong feeding and letting crickets loose and although he’s stalked them, he hasn’t eaten in front of me in the past month.

    he’s on critter crumble (was on sand but was having humidity problems) and has a thermal heater that keeps him at 28-30 degrees. he has hides, plenty or branches, water and both real and fake leaves. his humidity is usually 20-40% and he has never had problems with shedding.

    i would really appreciate advice as i’m quite concerned. there’s not noticeable weight loss but he’s usually a bit chunkier.
