Insectivorous

 

A good rule of thumb is to not feed your lizard any insects that are larger than the width of the lizards head. It is vitally important that you feed your lizard a variety of insects so that it receives all the necessary vitamins.

Gut-loading refers to feeding the insects with a large amount of nutrients and vitamins so that when your lizard eats the insect it will ingest the vitamins as well. This is always a good idea to keep in mind if you have an insectivorous lizard.

Insectivorous lizards should be fed on a daily basis and in a short while you will get an idea as to how many insects your lizard will eat at one time. Remove from the cage any uneaten insects after an hour or two.
