We used to. His name was Puff. Like the magic Dragon, lol. Anyway he went through this a few times, especially when it was really cold out. No matter what his heat lamp was doing for him, he just felt like it was hibernation time. The exotic pet store suggested spoon feeding him jarred baby food such as green beans, peas, or spinach. Puff loved it, and we would get him meal worms while he was getting back in the mood to eat. We saved crickets for when he was doing better, and went back to giving him a pinky once a week (eww!) once he could eat a dozen crickets a day again. I suggest calling an exotic pet store or vet and running stuff past them. Hopefully yours snaps out of it soon! :)

Thanks. WIll try and get her some babyfood today. As far as I can tell all the temps are right. She was a little backed up and I gave her a bath yesterday and that seemed to have cleaned her out but she still isn't eating. Going to go and get her one of the heated rocks for her to lay on today and see if that will help.

How old is she?
I agree could be the temp
Could be also be stress. Any new changes?

I would say she is only a couple of months old. She is pretty small. We bought her 2 weeks ago. She was eating just fine up until about 5 days ago. We havn't changed anything since we put her in her cage.
