 Please help,

if you could post some pictures that would be a help but also its winter so theyll slow down on eating i would just say keep a close eye on her you can also try hand feeding her with some tweezers or something and you wont always see them drink but trust me they do hope i was a help

 Please help,

sounds like shes shedding if shes changing colors.. keep up the humidity and leave her be. put crickets in overnight and pull excess out in the morning. gives them a chance to hunt and doesnt stress them out.

I agree with the post above me (can’t remember the exact username started with an S...) From her

it sounds like she’s shedding. Just leave her be and make sure there is a high humidity to help her shed. If it seems she’s having a little trouble put her in a container with paper towels soaked in hot water for 30 minutes.
