    Don't feed it fingers!!! They do not like to be teased.

    And Jian, you can get bugs at the pet store. Saves you money in shipping.

    Any pet store in your area should have meal worms, crickets, and things like that.

    sugar is a no no, so is salt, and pepper. I think they like tlc (no not the group)!!! Hmm.... I know ine dont like otehr parts of themselfs being sucked on. Ive tried to feed it a small leaf, trap died... Nothing smaller than a worker ant, not enough enph.

    - Thats my 2 cents

    Well, that sure leaves us a lot of choices... [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    incidentally, flies are probably the best option. I have had success with most bugs as long as they are approxametaly the right size.

    Another no-no is earthworms.... Especially if they don't quite fit. That was quite a interesting experience, especially to the nose [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    To Summarize......

    NO food intended for human consumption.

    NO Insects larger than the size of the trap.

    NO insects with hard shells that could take a long time to digest

    NO insects containing damaging substances such as formic acid etc (larger sized ants)

    NO relatives, neighbours, children or pets.

    So that leaves

    small flies!!![img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
