I have an awesome 2 1/2 yr. old female Mxican Red Knee I've had since this past May & so far she's only devoured 2 crickets! She is (tends) to be a fussy eater I think. Would you suggest offering "Hades" something different, like a pinkie mouse, or a pinkie rat ( live or frozen), or a superworm? Other than that, her abdomen's nice & plump, she sits upright & she still kicks her urticating hairs at me when annoyed when I attempt to hold her! Cool

Thats tricky. Some spiders take it hard if they have changes in their enviroment (I had a curly hair that would'nt eat for over 6 months).
If your T shows "normal" behavior and her abdomen (butt) is full, I would'nt be to concerned.
I feed all my T's crickets, even the big guys. Food is more a preference. If you like pinkies and your T will eat them, then thats fine to. More importand is, that your feeder animals are gut loaded (pinkies dont count of course Smile ).

It's also possible she may be approaching a molt. Some t's may fast for several months when they are prepairing to molt.
