    Did you buy them? Hatch them?

    Why are you feeding them fruit?

    Normal diet consists primarily of leafy greens, cactus, and an occasional treat of mushrooms, or berries. Broad leaf grasses are presently being grown.

    However, some choose to harvest their own dinner!

    This is great news! So glad to hear that another breeder is successfully hatching this species!

    I'd love to see any pics or info you'd like to share about how the adults or babies are being housed and cared for.
