"I was given a chilean rose (Penelope) for my 21st birthday and I love her even more than my dog. I am quite worried about her at the moment though. My boyfriend said that when he bought her the shopkeeper fed her a cricket and she ate it right away. I have now had her for seven months and she has not eaten once. I tried to feed her again earlier today..every time the cricket came near her she shied away. It even crawled through her legs and she just lifted them away from it. Should I try feeding her something else? She has a lot of webbing around the tank. Also I am worried about the comments on here concerning heat mats. I had to move Penny out of my living room because it's a converted garage and I think it's way too cold for her. I got a heat mat and it just seemed to make one little area really hot while the rest of the tank stayed cold. She started acting quite strangely with it there so I took it away and moved her to another room again. It was the shopkeeper of the reptile shop that told me to get the mat though! Very confused. (Out of interest, does anyone name their crickets as well? Mine are called Derek. =]] )"
