Lizzy laid another clutch about 3-4 days ago now and again she has gone right down hill and looks a sorry sight.

Exactly the same as last time....just lying under her basking light not moving even at night , she just lays there all spread out.But this time i cannot get her to eat, i brought her some morio and meal worms lightly dusted in calci powder and she is not interested.I have even just put the bowl right in front of her so she does not have to move , she ate 2 meal worms and then laid down again.She is very lerthargic also and keeps nappping on and off through the day.Any advice would be great please.

All I can suggest is nipping the temps up a couple of degrees and force feeding for a few days (include a pinky mouse every second feed for a couple of weeks).

Ok thanks Rick.

I hope this is the last time Matt , as it really knackers her out and its all for nothing as they are just slugs.Fingers crossed this is the last time for her.I hate seeing her like this.

Poor little girl, I hope she soon recovers. :)
It's so frustrating when this happens.
Mother Nature seems so cruel at times. :x
