Well, I was able to lure the uninvited guest reptilian terarrium inhabitant I found last night into my mantis hatching jar (no mantids this year) and I setup the terrarium properly to house a lizard. Or at least what I could accomplish in one day. I had put some baby crickets in the jar and showed it to him he seemed to know that was food but once he was in there the damn crickets started biting him! So I put my hand in and he jumped on my thumb, I pulled all the crickets out my luring them onto a stick and then he was fine in the mantis jar on a fern leaf while I setup the tank. Here's what I've got setup this afternoon:
The white thing is the cap for the siphon tube going to the false bottom. I've got some black silicone coming that I will use with cocofiber to disguise the cap (I have two caps).
And here's the king in his new castle, he ate 5 or 6 fruit flies just as soon as I set him loose back in his terrarium. I sure am glad I found fruit flies cos the nasty crickets were too big for him, just as I thought last night.
