Trouble with Feeding.

Postby AidanShmodias » Sat Sep 22, 2018 9:33 pm

My friend sobek, which is basically a year old now is having trouble eating (I think). He just won't eat his superworms. He eats them rarely and his belly looks very slim at times. Sure he eats his greens but he just won't eat the superworms. After two weeks he'll eat like one superworm. I think he's blind because sometimes I put worms in front of him and he doesn't even look at them, Can someone help me?

Have you tried another feeder insect such as silkworms or hornworms, they are bright and easy to see, soft and slow moving , and don't bite back.

Other options are locusts , crickets or roaches , all of which are very good feeder insects.

I suggest you work through this incase it's an issue with lighting or husbandry : viewtopic.php?f=6&t=236150&p=1815390#p1815390
