    ok figured out an even better way!! when its feeding time.. those egg crates that I put In my tank for the dubia to gather one? well flip one over.. put the babies on it and let em rip! I was shaking them but they got everywhere and I was having to sweep them up. this works great!! A1ED1DA8-orig.jpg

    when they are done they leave. lol B4F61DD7-orig.jpg

    the subia stay in the vicinity.. the babies learn to hunt more, and less mess. YAY.. im so glad im lazy. hahahaha. now to get them to stop pooping EVERYWHERE like 8 times a day dang..

    added a new branch to the enclosure. some enrichment.. now they all clammer up there and fight over who is king of the mountain. Well all except Sylvia who runs up.. plows off the end like she is sky diving and then runs up and does it again. Does she think she is Flying or what? Whats the purpose of this? Extra papertowel padding has gone down for my little hellion. ugh.

    I love them! Love them all! Pandora is very pretty. The zig zag one is neat looking too! :)
    Keep those pics coming! You seem to have a lot of activity going on. My girl Angel is not eating yet. She May have eaten two crickets. I had to go away. She seems to be a shy eater for right now. They are either eaten or they are hidden lol. We will see if she poops. :). That's a telltale sign :) she hasn't really eaten anything since I got her on Saturday. I may have to hold the cricket in her face and force her or try the reptiboost. I have to buy some.

    Does that have to be ordered or do you get that at the pet store?

    I ordered mine but then I found it at petsmart or petco also.. cant remember which one. Mine are fat little buggers. Im always feeding them it seems. some are quite violent about it. lol little beasties. Love it. Just wish my dubia colony was providing enough. Tiger Ivy and my local supplier have been so much help getting me going. I couldn't have made it this far. I suggest getting a colony started asap. They don't hardly smell and I haven't had an escape and they are sooooo nutricious!! May

    Everytime I read your title my first thought is "good luck getting them to stop eating..." I will tell you this they just eat more and more and more and more...It never ends!!!

    Thala.. Neither does the pooping. oh my word. I thought their parents poops stunk!! these little buggers are pooping machines! and the size!! holy crap.. well.. almost. haha. The first week was crazy. now things have mellowed out. they trust me but are going thru shedding and being little idiots. Feeding is good. they are fat n sassy. Im a happy mother of dragons. Now to find them homes. I cant wait to be able to sleep in again! lol check the pics on my facebook. they shedded/ing. lol

    they never stop shedding either. I swear as soon as zsaasz is done shedding a body part then grundy starts to shed...then zsaasz...and Oh my does the poop just get worse as they grow. Because you still have like 30piles a day but now the piles are huge! They poop bigger than my adult cwd! and they choose the most inconvienent places to go...like down the rock stack and smeared on the glass...or under the other one so now they need bathes. Or the salad bowl...It never fails as soon as the salad bowl goes in zsaasz runs to eat it and will poo before grundy gets a chance to eat.

    Welllllll human babies poop more than adults too. Maybe that's why they have so much energy lol;)

    I can't wait till mine poops! She ate a cricket today. One. And two tiny pieces of mango. Hopefully tomorrow she will eat more. Had to hand feed her.

    I wish I could buy one of yours, May! They are so fun and cute.
