Default Skittish male

S.s.terrestris subadult pair


female was bulky and eats good, but skinny male doesn't shows any sign of eating.

Should I separate them and try new feeders?
(female likes slugs and small crickets)

Hello megasquid, how did you get on? Is your salamander feeding now? I'd be interested in knowing.
I've got some which don't like disturbance and prefer coming out after dark when they think I'm not about. I can't decide if this is due to reverting back to instinct because they are in a 'natural' set up with lots of places to hide or, worryingly, they weren't captive bred in the first place.
