: Flower pollen is also something they prob come across frequently in the wild.

I've often read about using pollen, so I add it to their fruit about twice a month. In summer I put a bouquet of fresh cut safe (edible) flowers in the auriculatus tanks since they seem to make the most use of it. I use lily, daylily, pansy, violet, roses and malva. When I check the bouquet in the morning, the pollen is gone, and most often big bites out of petals. They've even eaten entire violet blossoms. Sunflower heads are great too - I just add a chunk complete with some petals, since the entire head is way too big. It's interesting watching them lick the pollen off. One female is particularly fond of it, and spends nearly an hour at a time criss-crossing the sunflower to get every last grain of pollen.
