    Thanks everyone for the 'push' to order Butter some silk worms. He loves them. His appetite has gone through the roof, and I started "serving" a few silkworms on spinach or dark greens, and he adores the greens now too. (I call it a silk worm salad) I wish I had a digital on hand to...

    Excited!!! Butter eating greens !!

    I have been worried about Butter (Veiled 5 months old) because I never see him drink, so this morning, I put his favorite waxworms in his plastic dish, on a bed of mixed baby greens that I had just washed. The greens were wet and fresh. An hour later, I was thrilled to watch him "shoot" at the...

    Butter, my veiled boy is now about 4 months old. The small crix seem so little for him, and he was eating like 15 a day......but the mediums look so big. He doesn't like to eat when anyone is nearby, so I rarely get to see him hunt and eat. He also gets a few wax wormies a week, and eats...

    He Fell !!!!

    My baby veiled was hanging on to the side screening of his enclousure, playing some form of chameleon twister, and crash ! The poor little guy landed on the bottom of his cage. He laid there looking stunned (he landed on his belly) for a couple seconds, and then was trying to find a way up...
