they must have some taste/smell ability because of the way they refuse some food, and can't wait for another.
I can not believe the way Zoe PLOWS through the repti-aide! But was totally ambivilant about the bug juice, and even the wax worms.
I am feeding him the suppliment through a syringe, so there is no challenge, or movement involved, and he sits there WAITING for the next taste...it must taste good, because the texture is like dirt mixed with paste. BLEEECH!

:They seem to have a very good idea of the surroundings, not simply "seeing", but they do interpret their world, too. They will not simply make a beeline to food or a mate, instead, the know what is the best way to get from one part of their area to another--I noticed this in my 12' X 8 X 8 out door cage. The have an inter, 3D map of their enviornment--I believe that is why changing their surroundings stesses them so much.
