    Thank you very much! That was extremely helpful.
    Do any of you breed silkworm? Do any of you guys feed them to rhacodactylus?

    Armen, I've bred silkworms for a bit a about a year ago. I would suggest picking up a cup of them at a show before picking up eggs and chow. In my experience a lot of herps don't take to them, which is unfortunate. The rhacs didn't go for them at all, even my bearded dragon wasn't that fond of them. They carry a certain odor and I would imagine taste from their diet of mulberry leaves or chow. That combined with the fact that they don't really move around like a lot of other feeders; so consequently don't get the same feeding response.

    I use superworms for my beardie and I have thought of trying one or two of the smaller ones with my cresteds. They are pretty easy to breed and keep. Easier then dubias even.
