Hello everyone, I'm new to the forums and just wanted to ask a few questions and get some advice. I've been having a rough time getting him to eat regularly and often have to disturb his hide to remove live crickets/superworms. He seems to only eat 1-2 crickets and a worm every few days. He's only medium sized and should still have some growing room. I keep the temp around 85°-90° during the day and around 70°-80° at night with an under tank heating pad along the "Hot" end of the enclosure. I've had him about 1.5 months now and I'm being sure to feed the crickets well for a couple of days before feeding them to him and always dust them with Reptivite with D3. He has a UVB strip and plenty of climbing and rocks/hides. Also I keep a water dish out for him.

He's also very skittish even after making a point to interact with him every day. No idea how to get him to eat from my hand. I move slow and deliberately but he just skitters away.

Wow, I rambled like a school girl. Any help would help and I'll clarify anything you ask. (Cordylus tropidosternum)
