: I was talking about Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. I was just curious whether or not anyone has fed them to offer a more varied diet. Alot of people have been feeding them to monitors and other lizards lately. Was just a thought. Thanks : Nick
I can remember when it was believed that a strict rodent diet could be detrimental to the health of monitors. I don't know what the general consensus is on proper montior diets now, but I do know they eat a lot and have a metabolism more similar to birds than Gilas LOL! As already mentioned, most people agree that heloderma should only be fed eggs in moderation - they seem to do fine on mice and/or rats.
