hi lester, i am new to this site but have been reading the many messages you have posted and found them very informative. i am contemplating rescuing a desert HL from my local pet shop, it seems to be in good health at the moment but of course it isn't being fed the right diet. it is about 3-3 1/2" long. i know you recommend natural sand, if that isn't possible to get, what would be the next best thing that i could purchase (name, brand) i live in pennsylvania and don't know if i could collect anything suitable. any other info you could give me on setup would be appreciated, i'd like to have everything set up properly before bringing the HL home (lighting especially). being that they are approaching hibernation, is there anything i should do differently? it would have to be kept indoors at all times, i don't think PA has warm enough weather for it to be outside. i've already checked into ordering the ants for it to eat. will it pick up eating them again if it hasn't been fed the right foods for a while? sorry to bombard you with so many ?'s, i'll let it go at that, i'm sure to have more later. thanks in advance.
