No the crickets and locusts are not to large he is eating 3rd brown crickets. The bulb s suspended off the ceiling. In scotland it can get really cold but lately we have had our summer (which consists of one week) and it has been getting close to 30 degrees outside so our house is not cold. He does not hold his much open when he basks. I have mealworms but they are to big for him and he does not seem bothered. I will see if i can get silkworms over the internet. Yesterday he ate two crickets one on the border of being a 4th cricket. His shed is almost finished also.Are the crickets and locusts maybe too large for him?. Did they grow since you have had them or do you keep buying new every week and keep them small?Just an idea if they prey is too large he might not eat it. Are you sure with a 100watt bulb you are only getting a 80-82 basking temp? Do you have the light suspended high up or something. that seems low for that high wattage of a bulb. Maybe your house is really cold? Don't know anything about the uvb bulb you are using. Not sure on the 12%d3 lamp if that is incorrect. I know people are using the Arcadia's more and more but not sure if that is too much. Does he ever hold his mouth open when he basks?? Do you have any access to any type of worms like silkworms over there?
What would you reccomend I have locusts and brown crickets, i am feeding them, he doesn't seem bothered with the mealworms i have and thats all i can really get in the pet stores the rest i have to buy off the internet like grubs etc. If i got a list of all the things i should get i will put in an order.How about trying another feeder?
Can you get roaches? I know people like to feed them. I cannot stand the sight of them so I don't. I feed my chameleons crickets, superworms, hornworms, silkworms, moths and dragon flies when I can catch them! Some other worm feeders are butterworms and phoenix worms. Also mantids are used as feeders if you can get them.
