Black female panther


my panther is 17 months I e had her for 8 months cage is 36x18x36 lighting is a zoo med t5 ho 36 hood dust crickets every day but sundays then I dust with a d3 one week and next vitamin she has a dripper and a misting system normally set for every 2 hours for 30 sec but Sunday I cleaned her cage and adjusted her sprayer and tested it at 12 seconds and forgot to change back till Wednesday morning when I noticed she was black I seen I didn’t change it she’s drinking but hasn’t ate in 3 days eyes are open but not moving and usually she’s all over and eats soon as I put crickets in won’t even eat a super worms and those are her fav humidity is between 55-75 at night it drops to 30 but I’ve recently added a humidifier in room to help with that I know she is gavid she has laid 2 clutches before I weigh her every Sunday and she was at 69. G usually between 60-65 when not carrying eggs she’s drinking cause I moved the dripper to where she is and I watch her drink do you think she is dehydrated from when I had the mister set at 12 seconds? She’s never acted this way always ate till time she laid eggs not as much but would eat a few and nothing last 3 days not even moving around

well how long are her mists? also please fill out the how to ask for help form so we can get a good idea of why she would e like this, have you tried tempting her to eat with hornworms or other foods?


Nice enclosure. Could be time to lay eggs again, and i don't see a lay bin in her cage.
It’s just hidden behind the plants it’s always in there and usually she gets to about 85 grams she just laid October 6 so I’m guessing beginning of December I weighed her Sunday and she weighed 69 grams that’s how I know she’s carrying usually she’s between 60-65 when not carrying I just never seen her act this way and always eating till time to lay at least a few towards laying day
