    Yeah that'll work.
    And get her a bouque of S.flava flowers. She'll be weak in the knees.

    Big, Big, mistake!! You should have skipped the larger snake!! She was secretly hoping for a Mexican Fire Leg (Brachypelma boehmei). Just think about the wonderful look on her face when she cut the ribbon, opened the box and had one of these slowly crawl up her arm....

    Priceless!!

    When in doubt, buy her both.

    I had no idea what a Mexican fire leg was--cute. It's furry and cuddly, right.

    Gomez was on a hunger strike. Crickets had no appeal, so I gave him three wax worms, but no more. I hope that stimulates his appetite. He loved them!

    Wow! I just fed him a cricket from my hand! He's so sweet.

    Don't get him hooked on wax worms. That's all he'll want to eat. They are good for a treat but they are high in fat, and not good all the time. It's like you only eating candy bars.

    Yes the fire legs are furry and cute.

    Thanks for the advice about wax worms. I read that and that's why I only gave him three. Yesterday I fed him six crickets, gut loaded and dusted with Reptical. This is more work that I bargained for but worth it.

    You can keep the fire legs. You can't convince me they don't have nasty bites.

    Two cool feeders I'm trying out are Phoenix worms and lobster roaches. The former are small grubs, never more than about 1/2" long, but they're packed with calcium. The latter apparently are easy to breed, the same size as crickets, don't fly or jump, don't make noise, and don't reek like crickets do. I'll also give both a shot in my plants, see if they make a difference.
