Is it a young BD or adult ? I rescued my adult, she only ate morio worms and wouldn't touch crickets. I started to feed her in a large plastic box instead of the viv. With being able to see them clearly and catch them easily, she now wolfs them down.

Really need to know the age and how long you've had her. They don't like change and can refuse food for 7~10 days after being moved, an adult will go for weeks as long as it has a good store of fat in its tail but a baby will need to start eating with about 7 days.
