:Thanks a lot for the help. But as a I wrote I am not a beginner, I have about 40 herps currently, and have had them for over 14 years. Its just now that I have gotten the nerve to try these species. I live in Wisconsin so there are no natives here.


:Living in Wisconsin is going to be a big problem for you working with HLs. 14 years and 40 herps is great, but you probably have not worked with animals that are as specialized or as sensitive as the HLs. Good luck on your attempt. Please pay special attention to the conservation issues and the very specific dietary requirements. These are not, and I mean not, easy herps to take care of in captivity. Just ask the San Diego Zoo, the LA Zoo, and other zoos areound the country. Lester G. Milroy III
