:who are you and how much knowlage do you have of the newtrition of termites. they are the next best thing to ants. about the only thing they are missing is formic acid. so if you want to talk about faty foods than look at a cricket. a termite is nothing like a cricket. i wood also like to know how much knowlage you have with hl. because with an answer like that i don't thank you have any. when my horned lizard was small she would not eat any thing but termites.
:If i put you on a diet of deep-fried fat and cream, then you would REAL FAT, real quick. Of course your HL is putting on weight on a diet of termites.
:I applaude your curiousity and desire to experiment, but you still need to understand that just because the HL will eat it, does not necessarily mean that you should feed them that prey item consistently.
:Do you want your HL to live a long or short life?
::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.
