    I don't feed them anything anymore. All 3 died in 04. I think they were sick when I bought them. I got them from a reptile show.

    Just a note to add to an old thread -- particulate substrates like CalciSand are not safe. I'm a herp vet and I've seen many beardies and other lizards die from CalciSand impactions. The only thing worse would be an organic particulate like bark, walnut shell, etc., as they support the growth of bacterial and fungal organisms.

    I'll also put in a NO for those calci-sand substrates. The only one that holds any appeal to me is CaribSea's Reptilite. Otherwise, I usually recommend a fine silica-based sand, such as Zoo Med's Repti-Sand. Though personally I use play sand :P Never lost anything to impaction yet.

    I am of the opinion that a lot of impaction issues are more related to proper hydration, but I never did like the way Calcium substrates stick together after they've been wet in the first place.
