i have fed my hl alot of different insects. just expirimenting you know. well i know they need ants ther are no if ands or buts. i also found that termites are a good sorce of food for them. well after finding out that the only ones helthy are termites and ants i have experimented with them only. what i have found is that the hl had grown a faster rate then with ants. i am not trying to get out of ants. the ants are more abundent than termites. i put her on a diet of termites for one month an she dubled in size. i have ben feeding her ants for three months now and she is staying the same size at 32grams. the male was cought not to long ago so he has ben on a diet of ants his whole life, and he only weighs 15grams on avarage and alwase looks thin.
