Barry is now about 1 year old and up until recently would poo once a week. He eats 5 or 6 medium/large crickets each day but doesn't really touch his veg. He's now not pooped for more than 2 weeks? He isn't bloated out at all and seems fine in himself.

Should I be worried about the lack of poop
Is he eating enough? He doesn't ever hunt his food, I always need to flick them towards him.

Thanks
Dave

Try increasing his veg a little and at this age he should be getting used to one meal of live every 2nd day.They really do hang on at times so 2 weeks isn't unusual. You can try a warm bath and tummy massage a couple of days doing that should work. What are the temps in the viv? If these are a little low it can slow the hunting instinct down.

That sound exactly like Anzac, same age she goes about every 2 weeks, we mark it on the calender to keep an eye on how often, she goes.
She has crickets every couple of days and won't eat much veg unless you hand feed her, then she will eat away to her hearts delight, lately she seem to like fruit & flowers more than veg

Ok thanks for the reassurance. Max temp is 110 degrees C, cool side low 90's.
Uv lamp is now six months old so will change that at weekend also.

He doesn't bother with veg, he had some curly kale the other day but that's it really. What veg/ fruit do you fine your eat?

Rocket, most of the Chinese green leaf stuff, dandelion leaves and flowers, nasturtium leaves all readily acceptable.
