I have had my WC Gold Dust for about a month now and it has been eating fine up until about a week ago. This past Saturday, it laid a dud egg so now I know it's a female. She is still very active but I haven't seen her eat any crickets anymore. She will still drink water and run about the cage but I haven't seen her eat any crickets. Is it bad to leave crickets in the cage? They are very small ones so I doubt she's afraid of them but she will cross their path and not do anything to them. I'm thinking maybe she's just co-existing with them and doesn't want to eat them. Any ideas? I've also tried mealworms with no success. I also think since she's WC, she's not used to a lot of the foods I am presenting to her. We don't have much wild crickets and we definitely don't have mealworms. When I did see her eat crickets, I had to either kill them and leave them on a leaf or she was really hungry and just attacked it. Hopefully her appetite will pick up since laid that dud egg.
