  • A little cresty from Daytona...

    I couldn't resist this little guy/gal while I was at Daytona. Unfortunately, the pics aren't that great, but I'm gonna share them anyway.

          I think he/she will go well with this one I'm getting from Pangea:

                So you're the one who snagged that awesome gecko from Matt!!! That's a sweet crested you got from Daytona too. I love the "second attempt" photo. Great composition.

                      Oh, and wouldn't it be sweet if Murphy would let me sneak by on this one and have them end up being a male and female?

                      Well, I've got a 50% chance of it...25% chance of 2 females which I wouldn't cry about...we won't think about the other 25% right now, but hey, if it happens, I'll have the coolest pair of studs ready to go.

                        sorry if I sound stupid and it's a bit off topic, but what are Phoenix worms?
                        I've never heard of them

                            Just you, Ken, just you.

                            The phoenix worm cup you see is a tub of them I picked up in Daytona. Evidently they have a superior calcium to phosphorus ratio (1.52:1) to the other feeder insects on the market. The amount of calcium (at 8155 ppm) is many times higher than that of crickets (345 ppm), mealies (133 ppm), and superworms (124 ppm). They are the larva of Hermetia illucens, a fly somewhat resembling a wasp in body shape.

                            Evidently they are supposed to last up to 6 weeks in their cup of grain-based diet, only requiring a couple drops of water if the diet dries out. Evidently you're not supposed to refrigerate them because it takes so long for them to recover and start wiggling to entice reptiles.

                            That's what I gathered from the pamphlet and talking to them at their booth. I suspect we'll be hearing a lot more on them in the future. I believe they've secured the website phoenixworms.com and will have a site up there soon, but don't quote me on it. [/u]
