    What Caging Do You Use?

    I've used everything over the years, including rack systems with plastic tubs and rack systems with PVC with built-in lights and vents and plexiglass doors. One nice thing about downsizing is that I'm switching over to all glass, Exo and Zoo Med. I don't have a preference between the two. But...

    Breeding for size - 70g and above?

    Took me a while to answer on this one but here is Nemo before feeding night. He's lost a few grams since last year during the summer when he clocked in at 92, probably because I feed bugs heavily over summer and don't feed them over winter. He was not fired up in the pic-younger pic on right...

    hatchling color change over time?

    Maybe this will help. First, chahoua color can change over the span of about 4 years. Your mileage may vary. This girl is a pastel version of her dam, although another sibling-bottom-got the reds from both and a pattern more like the sire. If I knew what all the parents/grandparents looked like...

    Breeding for size - 70g and above?

    I have Nemo over 90 grams. I'd like to get a big girl to go with him and see how it goes.

    Mixing Pre-Made Diets: Yes or No?

    I use pangea apricot as a base for most of my feeding. It has a higher fat and protein profile that most of the other non-insect Pangea flavors. I might dress it up with fresh smoothies, or even your recipe or another home-made one, and other formulas to try and change the taste from time to...

    Leachie Linguine or Chewie Fettucini?

    Makes sense. Something to think about.

    The Art & Science of Chahoua Pairing

    I've never had a chewie pair that didn't get along (knocks on cork) but then I don't spy on them at night with a red light either. Who knows what I would learn? That's not true for the leachies and cresties-I've had them fight and even kill each other. But the chews seem happy enough for company...

    Leachie Linguine or Chewie Fettucini?

    Thinking about adding these to the rotation. Has anyone tried it? What are your results? Edit-curious about this one because of the probiotics. Reminds me of the Clarks formula which seems to be hard to find these days.

    I've never had an overweight chahoua-actually the opposite, I struggle to keep the weight on them all year. But I do see this problem in cresties for sure. But I don't think it is just diet-related. My geckos are all fed on the same rotation and many stay slim on that rotation while others will...

    Your (Chahoua's) Favorite Feeder Insects

    My chewies do not like worms at all. They look personally offended when I offer them on tongs and ignore them in the cups. For a while, I was getting butterworms during the breeding season and cutting the heads off, but it was tedious and messy and the rewards just didn't seem worth it. I have...

    Ambient temperatures, heat lamps, cooling, etc

    I don't offer heat but for the last winter I added UVB for the chewies and leachies. The leachies will plaster themselves under the lights all day but the chewies seem to ignore it more often than not so far.
