I feed my tokays every other day and dust every feeding. You really don't need to feed every day.

I feed every other day, (sometimes every third day to encourage eating better each time, as they are not sure exactly when the next feed will come)
and I dust every feed, and use a 6:1 calcium to vitamin ratio.

oh yes, just recently, ive started feeding only five days in a week. i might even limit the feeding to three times in a week cos she is starting to bulk up too much and hardly clinging vertically cos of her weight (i think).

Hello Graham,

I've noted you have Eumeces schneideri. They are native to my country and I kept those years ago. Mine were eating not only insects, but also (with pleasure) soft grapes, mulberry and apricot fruits. Great animals!

I wish everybody at the forum Merry Christmas and Happy 2009!!
