    I imagine being able to see it in motion makes the coloration all the more brilliant. Or does she try to stay motionless when she catches you looking at her?

    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    That's got to be a bit of challenge, I would think, to maintain populations large enough to keep her fed.

    I already had a good breeding population happening before i feed them hehe. I have 9 prolific breeding pairs of Golden skinks that can produce 3-4 broods of about 5-9 babies in less than a year and it only takes 6 months for them to become 7" long feeders. The rice field frogs i breed commercially for exotic restaurants can produce about 17 kgs of sub-adult frogs in less than 5 months.

    My lizard and frog eaters only eat like 2-3 skinks/frogs per snake every 2 weeks plus occasionally some of my snakes freely feed on 3" wild mollies that are also readily available here for sale in small bulks.

    I have so much excess that i can feed them to my owls, sailfin lizards and hedgehogs at any given time

    That's just a defensive bluff. She normally calms down after a few minutes and loses the black & white. On normal days when its not eating, it just lies motionless
