NO you can’t feed them cow bodies, they’re only good for leopard geckos. Start him on pinhead crickets. A good staple diet though are leprechauns.

10 gallon tank is suitable for an adult, though might be too big for babies and they get easily lost and scared. I kept my baby in the microwave. The turntable was an excellent exercise wheel.

I agree, a ten gallon is much too big for a baby, and a microwave is even pushing it!

Well, do you have any pictures???

A microwave is much too large an enclosure to heat properly. Try using a George Foreman grill. If it gets hungry, it can eat George Foreman.

pencil boxes are an ideal setup for these little guys. i use the pencil shavings as substrait and as for feeding, i give him the pinhead crickets, flea larvae and an occasional annoying neighborhood kid.
