    Quick update on my Lereh GTP Colossus, Colossus had a good shed Saturday night, seems very healthy but this little one has gone on a hunger strike that I’ll have to get worked out with him (her)…

    Thanks Susan, I'm with you I want it to be short lived, I might start getting up in the early AM hours and try feeding

    I don't have his spreadsheet in front of me but it was early/mid March, this is his second shed and one poop with the first shed

    she's looking good :) Mid March is not too bad yet. I would leave her alone for atleast a couple of weeks completely. Only change the water and nothing else. Make sure your temp gradient and humidity are good and sit back for a little while. Good luck man!

    Thanks Joey, I'm an OCD freak on all their temp and humidity, I'm going to try a 2:00am feeding and see what happens, Nala is a good eater and has only turned down one meal since I've had her but this Lereh making me work and I see it as good practice

    Is it caudling yet? Moving the little tail when hanging down, that's how you can really see when they're ready to eat. What time do you normally feed? I've found that about an hour or two after lights out they'll be more likely to take food. Hopefully after this shed it'll be in better spirits and take it, good luck man

    Joey, can you expand on "caudling?" That is very interesting.

    Chondro neos have a different color tail they used to lure small animals over so they get them in striking range. Once you see them twitching the tail, it's a clear sign they're hunting and more likely to take food.

    Having said that, Pat 3-4 days may be too soon. Give it more time in between... IMO

    Joey I talked to Ryan earlier today while checking on my Supiori and he said that Colossus is at that 'fussy stage' and to try again Friday or so, Yes he's been caudling but he'll tuck and hide, I'm sure he'll be fine I'm just used Nala eating any and everything she can, I went back and look at Nala's chart and she went through this stage too just not this long

    They'll be the end of us Pat! :) I saw some of Ryan's stock.... if I wasn't waiting on Rocky to ship I might get away with another >:) Good luck with the feeding and let me know how it goes!
