Hello everyone! I just joined this site and I am very excited!
I just ordered a 1/2" chaco golden knee sling online and it should be here in a couple days. I have a few questions on you guys opinions on the care for this sling. There are so many different pieces of advice online.
My questions are:
How often to feed them? I bought some small pinhead roaches.
How to water them, like mist or water droplets, etc?
Any other advice in general for care?
Thank so much!
I am so excited! I have been researching which one to get for a while now and this was my choice I love it!

Start it out in a condiment cup with slightly damp sub. You can moisten with a syringe a dropper or however you like, just don't add too much, you don't want it dry, but you don't want it wet either. Just keeping part of the area damp can be easier.

From there move it to a 16oz deli cup once its about an inch DLS...at this time there will be sufficient room for a water dish. It can stay here till nearly 3"

Feed once or twice a week...roaches are fine, as are crickets, mealworm pieces, or wax worms.

Really easy to keep and really good eaters, even at 1/2"
