    What a BEAUTIFUL big girl! Thank you for sharing the video of her! Nice slow-mo! It seems like once she decided being in captivity is a good gig, she settled in perfectly. Happy ending to a months-long saga.

    Another update. She ate one of my male wide horn hissers today. I was shocked - these are not regular hissers but the largest hisser species I know of. Figured it was worth a shot since the males are only good to look at and fight each other. Took her a few tries! They don’t grow fast enough to be anything but a treat, still is exciting.

    Magnificent. I'm not surprised she could handle a whole hisser.

    Worth an update: after some work she now eats earthworms very well. I can put half dozen in her bowl and she is able to eat them up pretty quickly now that she learned to more shovel them in her mouth. These will save me a whole lot of money using them as a staple and supplementing with hornworms and roaches. I think people underestimate the cost of feeding a big girl like this. She has been out at the bowl the past couple of days in the morning looking for food! I was surprised to see her out at her bowl today as I fed her 2 hornworms and 14 large earthworms yesterday...

    Another update. I have a dynatrap bug catcher and it collects a lot of June bugs. Beetles must be something she was used to eating as she goes nuts for them! I caught a couple dozen one night and she ate them all. What this has allowed me to do is finally get her to recognize when I add to her food bowl and she comes over to eat! Took 6 months since she started eating for me but now I donít have to touch her at all, I was scooting her to the bowl or the food died before she came out, but now she comes over for worms even in the bowl. She has been a lot of work but itís rewarding so see this progress even if it takes months and months.
