Isn't it great when you finally find a food that one of your animals really likes?? My Cuban Kight Anole has been very fussy with food for the past three months. Sometimes eats crickets, seems to like superworms okay, won't eat dubia much at all. But I finally found something she really likes-- red wiggler worms. I think she likes their motion. She is eating them very aggresively.

You might want to research a bit more on red wigglers. I had a wc garter years back and thought about raising some red wigglers as a food source, but came across this article in my research.

From what I read it's a particular species of worm that is sold in bait shops. Mine come from the pet store, and from a farm that raises them to feed to pet herps.

Nice! It's such a relief when you finally find something they'll gobble.

My gecks have been swapping favorites like crazy lately. They're like toddlers, one week they inhale something, the next they want nothing to do with it.

Mine can be like that with Pangea flavors.

yup, mine too. I always mix at least two flavors of MRP and don't always buy the same flavors. I don't want to deal with hunger strikes with the formula or availability changes.

So I asked today when I bought my cup o' worms and these worms are apparently just small night crawlers-- not red wigglers. They have to be kept in the fridge. Good to know, though-- I'll be careful to make sure I get small night crawlers. The knight anole is also becoming fond of superworms. Won't touch dubia. Weirdo.

My brats are picky with their mixes too. Clearly I'm doing this all wrong.

That reminds me, I have dubia. They're so low maintenance I forget them sometimes, and unlike the crickets they didn't die 2 days after I bought them. Quinn's afraid of crickets so I haven't given him any to try yet, but GH loved them.

Sarah, my Dubia are the same way!! It's a shame he doesn't like them.
