:If you go to my web site there is a page that will help you determine the gender of you MHD. To view it, CLICK HERE.
:I have also prepared a short care sheet the purpose of which is to give new owners a quick jump-start with their MHDs. To view this CLICK HERE.
:The short caresheet has several links to the main caresheet in case you want more detailed information.
:I feel that the first order of business is to have a fecal exam done if you havenít already done so. Most MHDs from pet stores have many parasites and without treatment the chance of survival is slim.
:Second, I prefer not to have the crickets running loose. Most healthy adults will chase and eat them but there is some risk of them ingesting substrate and forming an impaction. They can also feed on feces and possibly even on your MHD. The best way to feed the MHDs is to pinch off the back legs and put them in a crock type bowl with cricket chow and a small piece of carrot.
:If you have any more questions donít hesitate to post and you will get answers.
:Welcome to the forum,
Thanks for that, so I would be better putting the crickets and mealworms in a little bowl instead of letting them run around the tank.
What is it best to gut load the crickets with, at the moment we are using apples, strawberries and other fruit.
Could another species of floor dwelling lizard, like a leopard or fat-tail gecko go in the same enclosure?
