Nice set up and nice looking leo you have there.

Can i make one suggestion, I would change the substrate. There's a risk of impaction with sand. I suggest bed a beast, slate, or the good old paper towels and newspaper.

Oh and you'll never be able to stop at one. =)

Drew,

Im new at all this stuff, keep the suggestions comming i wont be offended by any means!!
I got her from a breeder she use to be one of his breeder females and he told me thats what they've been on so i didnt' want to change anything, i know about impaction and it does scare me when reptiles are on sand, so i will look into changing that sometime this week, do you think its okay to put them on "repti Turf"? (its like a thin green rougher carpet type stuff) i really like the way it looks hehe
Isen't it awful i have just recently got her and i already have a wish list of more 10 pages long!!
Thanks for the ideas
~Hunter

I have never used calcisand before. I prefer paper but if works, it works Best of luck with your new girl.

i feel like a pain the the A** here but i have yet another question for the experts here
She loves to eat her wax worms, but those are her treats...i know shes big enough to eat large crix, but she wont...shes a very bad hunter like hit and miss all the time hehe she'll eat medium crickets but not really too many of them, what should i do? the guy i got her from keeps saying to feed her large but she will NOT eat them, i figured if she'll eat the med. its better than nothing....am i wrong? thanks guys

Well I spoiled all my babies anf fed them by hand lol they do seem really inept when they have to catch the crix. I wouldn't worry if she doesn't eat alot, I assume that you feed every two or three days. From the look of the pics, she's far from skinny. Large or medium crix doesn't matter as long as shes' feeding.
