      I will get prickly pear pads too and cut them up. Darn slimy but they love them. Strawberries still seem to be like tortoise crack to my guys. They will run after me to get them. I let them roam the yard and they will eat grass and weeds occasionally also. Hope that helps!

        Thanx for the help.. Where are you getting your cactus pads? Or are you growing them?

        You can get small commercial bags of them sliced up in wal-mart, kroger, etc. by the lettuce, you can also find the pads there but they are not always needle-free so be very careful. I wanted to grow some spineless cactus but never got to it yet.

        I have seen those at the store, but wonder if the cubes are too big for my hatchling to swallow and too small for me to cut up easily. I might give it a shot though and see what I can do. If it doesn't work for me I can always give it to my boss for their big sully. Thanx again

      I usually mix in either red or green leaf lettuce too, plus other things I may have like tomatoes, other lettuce, bits of fruit. I had been buying a bag of mixed greens from Wal-Mart that had some kale, mustard greens or some other green to throw some in the mix too. Usually twice a week I add a mound of wetted Mazuri food too.

      Hey Chase, I appreciate your comments on my male leopard. That hit me a bit harder than I expected. From your other post, I also feed mine a base of spring mix, although I usually leave most of the spinach in since they are adults. They are pretty picky and won't eat what they don't like.
