    My 15 yo leo Cha also uses her cool hide as her outhouse. She's been doing that for years.

    That sounds great!

    Have you found this info too?

    "A commercial gut loading food like Bug Burger or Superload (both by Repashy), Cricket Crack, Dinofuel, etc. is going to make your life easier AND provide a nutritious diet to your crickets at the same time. Avoid Fluker's gutloads, as they are super feeble in their formulas."

    "If you opt for making your own gutload at home, here is a list of great ingredients to use:
    Best: mustard greens, turnip greens, dandelion flowers & leaves, collard greens, escarole lettuce, papaya, watercress, and alfalfa.
    Good: sweet potato, carrots, oranges, mango, butternut squash, kale, apples, beet greens, blackberries, bok choy, and green beans.
    Dry food: bee pollen, organic non-salted sunflower seeds, spirulina, dried seaweed, flax seed, and organic non-salted almonds.
    Avoid as much as possible: potatoes, cabbage, iceberg lettuce, romaine lettuce, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, corn, grains, beans, oats, bread, cereal, meat, eggs, dog food, cat food, fish food, canned or dead insects, vertebrates."

    Does Iggy kinda look like this ~~~ when he's on the hunt? Just add legs.

    indeed but he doesnt have to chase them much due to my technique for catching them myself is grabbing one of their legs which tend to break off.

    Pro gutload finally arrived and the meal worms and crickets seem to love it. At 9 months old do you think ignatius would be to young for super worms?

    I've never fed superworms to any gecko. Do you have any superworms?

    If Iggy's looking for a treat, PetCo sells hornworms in 4-packs.
