  1. They are a lot of fun. Ive kept several species and the ackies are my favorite.
  2. Argentine b&w tegu pair, red ackie trio, argus monitor, 23 T's, 7 scorps
  3. I keep mine on a coco fiber/ sphagnum moss/ cypress mulch mix.. w/ plenty of dead dried hardwood leaveson the surface. temp 80-85 humidity tropical, 70%+
  4. jumping spiders are a great captive
  5. I had the same prob. with soil mites a few months back, I removed the top of the bin and replaced with a pair of pantyhose and allowed the bin to dry out for a few days and have not been able to find any since...
  6. I gut load my lats with gerber multigrain baby cereal and bee pollen they love both
  7. not sure if this would work for the lobsters. But when i had a similar issue with crickets, i put a few egg crates around on the floor in the room they escaped in and put a liitle dry roach chow under each and turned off the lights let it set for a few hrs and recovered alot more then i would have thought
  8. Ive had Dubia, discoid, B. fusca, and E.posticus for my main feeder colony. E. Posticus are now my main colony. They have good size and good maturation rate for a larger roach and out produce the dubia and discoid colonies I had. B. Fusca are great too.. Dubia are good but IMO discoid, fusca , and posticus are all superior feeders...
  9. This is my 1st arboreal... I think is just the start of an avic collection.
  10. Finally took delivery of my 3 A. Versi slings
  11. sorry about the link. I dont know what happened . Here it is again http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/food-feeding/46452-how-i-culture-woodlice-isopods.html
  12. From what little ive seen, and read yes. However there is a lot that is not known about many roach species in the wild.
  13. http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/food-feeding/46452-how-i-culture-woodlice-isopods.html I have used this method for dwarf whites as well as dwarf striped. it may not be the most productive it is very easy and leaves are not required. i am not sure how applicable it would be for larger species.
  14. Ive seen videos of wild LV's lighting up when they where touched or otherwise molested. I believe it is to confuse or deter potential predators
  15. I would imagine there are some risks of parasites etc... but w/c iso's in my experience can be difficult to establish.
  16. Crickets IMO are a poor feeder...the breeding speed and maturation rate are the only area they outshine roaches.... They smell like death, they have a high mortality rate, noisy, less protein per volume then roaches. Roaches are less labor intensive to maintain.
  17. I have had the same problem with roaches not moving in a manner that stimulates some monitor babies... I have been playing with the goblin roaches and I have not had an animal that prefers crickets refuse them yet.
  18. My raccoons love the occasional roach snack...
  19. 12+ inches, their cage was built around a stock trough full of topsoil. Where the eggs where deposited varied based on substrate temp and moisture (IMO) One of these days id like to take a field roach/herp trip to S. Florida.
  20. yes ive hatched 2 clutches... They are a lot of fun. Have heard the Colombians can be a hand full, but the Argentines are great..
  21. its is a screen top but 80% is sealed with a sealant. This is my 1st dwarf species, but i have produced many argus clutches... as well a few B&W tegu clutches.. A weekly 20 min soaking takes care of any shedding or dehydration issues. pro exotics used to produce alot of quality animals. Their care sheets are the best place to get started on any of the species they cover.
  22. Right now I have them in 30 long glass tank, w coco coir and top soil. when they move into their permanent home they will be on 12" of top soil, and play sand, w a top layer of cypress mulch...will post some pics soon V.glauteri, as well as storri are on my short list...
  23. i have a set of 48" shelves with 48" ultratherm heat pad w dimmer, on the shelf and am able to but 3 or 4 bins on the same pad. these heat pads do not get as hot as the sticky under tanks heaters. i have 3 shelves set up like that.. you can get the heat bats which are at beanfarm.com come in many sizes that will suit your needs. have used them on plastic snake hatchling racks as well as by roach bins.
