 FYI for feeding

I have found, instead of letting ants run loose in my HL pen, if you get one of the plastic containers Cesars dog food comes in, bury it to the rim in the substrate so the HL cant tip it over, the harvester ants, which are poor climbers tend to stay put. I put about ten at a time in tray so I can keep track of what hes eating and they dont pile up and help each other climb out the tray. Mine likes his water dish near the food tray, for some reason he likes to keep a body part, leg or tail in the water while he eats

I also like to put a thin layer of calcium dust in the bottom of the tray so everytime he zaps an ant, he gets calcium on his tongue too. i dont know if thats a good thing but it works
