if they eat a lot one day maybe they are full the next day..since they are babies then u have to feed them meat(meat,fish,chicken..) and also keep green leaves in the tank so they might eat it if they are hungry..

My boxies always get so fat before they hybernate! :) Then when they come out they look as if I\'d been starving them, and they then eat ten billion crickets! :)

I have one RES and he hasn\'t been eating much lately. On a regular basis I give him crickets, mealworms, and ReptoMin pellets. Then, occasionally I give him some other kind of meat for a treat. Usually he eats it all, but now I can\'t get him to eat the pellets at all. What\'s wrong? He sits in the corner all the time now too. Usually he\'s moving around lots. It\'s frustrating. I want him to be happy. Any suggestions?
