    Did you try with a meat of chicken breast? I feed this way my pacman frog and she likes it.

    I wonder if it would pass the exam, what substrate do you use? and what is the plant?

    Mice are definitely not necessary. Offering pinkie mice occasionally is fine but a diet of varied insect prey is preferred. A diet rich in mammalian prey can lead to obesity and a host of other health issues. Gutloaded and properly supplemented domestic crickets, dubia roaches, black soldier fly larvae, silkworm larvae and locusts are all acceptable prey items. I discourage you from feeding earth worms as they can carry parasites. Super worms, waxworms and butterworms should only be offered occasionally as treats. Avoid mealworms.

    Also, please note that raw chicken (or any chicken for that matter) beef heart, liver, etc are NOT acceptable food sources. Not only are they a poor source of nutrients but they also expose the animal to pathogens such as salmonella and parasites which can then easily transfer to the animal’s keeper through poor husbandry and handling.
