Updated 01-25-2013 at 10:18 PM by sandrachameleon (forgot to list basil and mint)

I periodically blend up a bunch of "dry" ingredients to use as part of my cricket, roach, and superworm gutload. This is the most recent "recipe" - all measures are approximate.
  • 4 cups (~32g) dehydrated dandelion leaves (calcium, vitamins)
  • 3 cups(~250g) alfalfa (protein, vitamins including K)
  • 1/2 cup (~60g) sesame seed (calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, maganese, selenium)
  • 1/2 cup (~114g) stabalized rice bran (vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, Omega fatty acids,

The raw bulb/base of the leaves is a decent source of Niacin, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Copper, and a very good source of Fiber, Vitamin C, Folate, Potassium and Manganese. Moderate amount of oxalic acid. Pretty tasty too

C. moorei AKA "Butterworms"


C. moorei, AKA “Butterworms” are a reasonably priced feeder that chameleons really enjoy. They range in color from a yellow to a bright red. These colorful feeders draw the attention of the animal and are easy to store. They worms are the larval form of C. moorei and come from Chile. They are sterilized before they exit the country because they are considered a potential invasive pest (making breeding impossible.) These worms have a scent that...

T. molitor AKA "Golden Mealworms"

T. molitor AKA "Golden Mealworms"


T. molitor, AKA “Golden Mealworms” are a very popular feeder for reptiles. They, along with crickets, are usually available at pet stores and sold as feeders. They are often also sold as bait for fishing. They are very inexpensive and can be used somewhat regularly as feeders. They are more of a treat than a “staple” feeder because they can be rather fatty and have a lot of chitin (basically a hard shell.) This chitin can be difficult for...

Im normally very much against censorship. But even so, I really wish I had started this forum / website. Then I'd be in charge of the rules. In which case I'd add a new #1 rule: "no idiots or trolls allowed"...
