1 pointMagnolia leaves will work fine as a leaf litter. I have oak in my enclosure, but that's just what i have available. As for food they don't seem to be too picky. I feed mine a mixture of fruit/vegetables like apples, bananas, orange, and carrots. They seem to favor apples, but that's what i feed mainly anyway. They also really like fish flakes I offer every few feedings. They usually take what they can get.
