Tia gets Dubia Roaches as a staple with the occassional tub of locusts as a treat.

The only greens I can get her to eat is Kurly Cale though

Our babies are always started on mixed veg. Bok Choy, Choy Sum, Snow Peas, Butternut Pumpkin, Dandelion Flowers. This is provided first thing in the morning and is freshened up with a very light spray mid day. Live food starts with 3mm crickets and an occasional treat of similar size roaches with the first feed mid morning , 2nd feed early afternoon and a top up (if needed) an hour before lights out. Live feeding is tapered off over about 6 months to a single feed daily with the size increased s they grow.
Personally I use a very fine scattering of sand for substrate but only because I'm experienced enough to see that they are not ingesting any when hunting, my recommendation to beginners is for no substrate or kitchen paper until they are seen to be hunting accurately without grabbing a mouthful of substrate when pouncing on prey.

mainly spring greens, kale, green beans, peas (though he's gone off them), and the occasional raspberry (his favorite). Bugs are mainly crickets with the occasional dubia and locust.

Sub I use ikea drawer liner, although I may move to ungrouted tiles soon enough.

Regarding Substrate I actually have floor lino in my viv. Its a rough industrial one (was free from a friend who was refurbishing the bathrooms at Marchwood Priory) so no issues with Tia slipping around on it

Felix has a salad mix and butternut squash croutons. We sometimes add herbs or other veg we have in and which is safe for them. He likes raspberries and dandelion flowers. He has Dubias as staple livefood and we buy a tub of morios every few months as a treat :mrgreen:
