    Hello All,

    My savannah monitor seems to be losing interest in locusts and would like to keep him eating some insects as opposed to just a rodent diet. Does anyone know any good sites for ordering roaches?

    Loki is around 3ft now. I have seen people selling breeding colonies of roaches but I'm not 100% keen on breeding them as they require 30-32 degree Celsius heat apparently. Plus my fear is I will get a colony and Loki won't be interested in them!

    I have changed Loki's diet now to feeding twice a week, Tuesdays and Saturdays, one large mouse.

    dekor, i wanted to ask you something off topic. when i changed my lights to holegens, i had also a heat emminating bulb, i found out for me the humidity i was producing was being stolen by this bulb so i eliminated it all together are you running both types. i have a humidity gage inside viv, i guess what i want to know is can you see your moisture on your glass and or inside viv ?

    i started my dubia (colony) if you could call it that but i did get 8 juvies, about the size of a nickel. I will get more when i can. I started them off on cocunut husk for subtrate about an inch added small egg crate pieces , another inch of shreded husk, a small u.t.h , a little dry cereal, sliced potato & sliced apple just to see what they prefer . A little misting, then i wrapped them, so they would be in the dark.
    FUNNY thing, they were barely moving at the pet store where my buddy works, i get them home a little research later set them up right (as far as i know) so i check on them for the first time four days later (which was yesterday) i barely lift up the crate & with a flash light I SEE THEM SCURRY'ING AROUND INSIDE THERE, like happy little bugs
