So when I first got my yearling sulcata-
I got her diet down over the next few years.

-kale
-mustard greens
-collard greens
-spring mix
-dandelion leaves
-cactus pads
-mazuri

Now that I have my hatchling leopard I'm starting to wonder something.. Are there any foods that might be too RICH for a baby? Here's why I'm asking. I rotate out foods between the list above about every other week and over the last week I've been offering the collards along with the usual mazuri. Baby seems to be eating it but is eating a bit less than usual and seems a bit more lethargic. Could this be because collards are extra rich in calcium and might be too strong for a hatchling? Just wondering y'all's thoughts. Much appreciated. :)
