Just got all three baby pardalis on dubia nymphs. The larger male and female took about a month to convert, and the smaller male wouldn’t even cup feed until last week. But today, all the last hold out snagged a dubia! Yay!
That's where I am at now, he will take literally anything but dubia roaches. I've tried only offering roaches for 1-2 weeks but he still refused. I then tried putting like 10 dubias in a cup with 1 or 2 supers, hoping he would accidentally eat a dubia but he still avoided the roaches. I'm sure if I hold out for weeks he would eventually take one. But not sure if this would result in him going back to eating them regularly, or if I would continually need to starve him to get him to eat the roaches.Yeah, I’m not all that worried about when they’re adults. once they’re full grown, they’ll eat what give them or go hungry. I have a male veiled who just recently started refusing roaches. He’ll eat crickets, supers and horns, but no roaches. So, I just only offered roaches for a week, and he finally gave in.
When mine was a baby he would eat dubia nymphs all day. When he hit 8 months or so, he stopped eating them. I am not sure this is due to me introducing him to superworms, or if he just stopped liking them. If I was you I would avoid giving them 'treat' feeders to keep them on the healthy and easy to maintain dubia's.
