    On The Road..

    We take ours with us a lot as it is hard to find someone that will give them the care we do. They go camping ect all the time. We put them in clear rubber made containers with substrate. their normal rock for food and their hid box and they do just fine.

    Baby not eatting

    We have tried the flowers and all sorts of bright colored fruit even to see if he will even try it and he won't. We are going to try a little apple juice mixed in and see if he will try it. Thanks for your idea!
