    stupid question

    I'm not a huge fan of bugs either. I use gut loaded crickets (I can't do mealworms, but ask my son to do it) and I was going to try silkworms. This is what I do for crickets. I keep all the crickets in one of those little critter cages with egg crate. Then when it's time for a feeding I...

    hunting etc.

    I have a baby veiled girl - Zaida. I've noticed that when she seems to be hunting she walks around and around in circles on the floor of the cage and she turns very patterned. She also holds her tail strait out. Is this normal. I've heard that when Chams turn brown or patterned it means...

    Veggies for chams?

    There is a helpful thread about this from a couple weeks ago: Mistyck posted a thread called "Where would I find..." on 4/18 there were good responses about what and how to feed chams veggies.

    poop

    I'm not sure exactly how old she is. We got her on the 9th of April as a baby. We got her at a pet store and forgot to ask how old she was. Also, yesterday she ate a total of 9 crickets and she drank also.

    gut loading clarification

    thanks guys. it's complicated. She's a baby female so I guess she needs more. but I usually take her outside when it's sunny. plus I give the crickets veggies, cricket food and quencher. I really appreciate the feedback.

    poop

    I've been worried about my baby girl veiled. She hasn't had much of an appetite and I rarely see her drink. I was very happy b/c the day before yesterday she ate 5 crickets and took some water from the dropper I use. But then yesterday she didn't eat anything! and I didn't see her drink...

    gut loading clarification

    We feed my baby veiled gut loaded crickets. But, actually I need a clarification on gut loading. We have a cricket cage thing and I keep it stocked with cut veggies and cricket quencher (that yellow jelly stuff). Does that count as gut loading or do I have to make sure the crickets eat...
