    Default Baby Pacman not eating much.

    The little baby Cranwelli I recued isn't eating very much now. I'm not sure if the little guy/girl is stressed for some reason or if its schedule is messed up. It woke up wanting to eat at like 3 pm wedsday so I went ahead and gave it a couple wigglers because it didn't eat the night before. Then it ate one more that night. The little guy/girl might have eaten acouple of little crickets last night but I'm not sure. When I got it, it was an awesome eater 4 to 6 small crickets a night. I've never had one this small so I'm wondering what could be stressing the little Guy /girl?

    It dosn't sound like he's starving. They dont eat all the time. One of mine goes on and off eating.

    Thanks. I'm just worried because he/she is so little. Don't want him/her to start withering away.

    I think the worms may take a bit longer to digest. Our froglets eat every other night when earthworms are on the menu whereas the juvies & adults will eat them no matter what.
    Is he/she eating a day or two later? It could also just be he/she is a picky eater. Some of ours are and will refuse the food items they like the least because they seem to have learned that we will offer them other stuff if they won't eat the cricket or worm offered originally.

    I tried to offer a really small Hornworm that was small enough for a baby Pac, but it refused to eat it. I assume its because he/she hasn't ever had them before. I might have to force feed one to the little guy/girl so he/she gets a taste for them.

    have any of you ever tried the powdered food from Samurai?
    We tried it for our picky babies and it worked every time for us.
    Easy to use, just add water and make a dough, ball up an appropriate sized bit and tong feed.
    It's worth a try!

    I've thought about getting some of that. Its supposed to have everything a Pacman needs in a food source. I just don't know if it will work on one so young. He reacts to movement and since he/she hasn't. Reacted a lot the las couple days (at least not in front of me) I'm not sure if he/she would take it.

    We ordered it from a site that is their US distributor. The link is on Samurai's site.

    Well I dropped the humidity down to 65% in the little baby's keeper and after he/she woke up I dropped 6 small crickets in with him/her and now he/she is chasing them all over and eating. All is well. Giveing credit to BG aka George for the idea of keeping babys at 65% humidity. Might have been the trick.
