    I have had my lil guy ever sense he was a baby. Hes about 6 months now and i keep reading all these people feeing so often and i have never been able to do that. He rarely eats though i try everyday. He will rarely eat a pinky and the thing i have the most luck with seem to be roaches. I have tried raw turkey frozen pinkeys (has never ate one only seems to go after the live ones) some fruits and vegies like collard greens. Anyone got any ideas on what to get him to try to eat more its really starting to bug me all he does is stay in his hide all day except for the time i spend with him. Also i live in colorado and the humidity is not high at all and i was wondering the best way to get his humidity even higher. Thank you in advance.

    What’s the surface temperature of his hot spot? A 6month old should be gobbling down full size mice
