    carefull of the substrate goin down the hatch it can cause compaction or necrosis of the mouth in captive animals, nice Darwins by the way.

    Yeah they rarely get any of the substrate but in this pic (wish I filmed it) she struck and was eating it hanging with her body wedged into the top corner of the the tank. Needless to say she slipped out and fell. So she left it on the ground got repositioned and had another go.

    Was pretty funny.

    The less substrate the better. In the wild they eat rats that have been running through bushes collecting dirt/grass, mites?

    from what i have learned wild animals and multi-generational captive animals are different not only in pattern and size etc etc, but also genetic differences such as (my opinion only not supported at all) maybe gut acids and tolerance to foreign body's in the gut etc etc,
    most(if not all) naturalistic substrates cant be digested and as such will compact or collect in the gut/bowel/butt areas and well lets face it that cant be good....
