that's it! i got mixed up with the other sp. ive kept them before,the purple color on these are amazing,they burrowed alot,i gave mine waxworms,mealworms,since they burrow also the beetles would consume them under the soil. the beetles like it semimiost aswell. yeah beetles are amazing insects:clap: so underated,but i'm glad we have some beetle admirers hereDicaelus sp.
I know somebody who has fairly regular access to these, but unfortunately so few people in this country care about beetles. This is sad because beetles can be very entertaining pets compared with other, shall we say, subterranean pets.
i'm thinking maybe the snaileaters(scaph sp.) will take earthworms,that's what i was planning on trying when i get some,i wonder if they will take waxworms/mealworms,experimenting....always fun. i could imagine the messy slime from their meals.............hmmm :barf: ahh,i still love emI've had a lot of trouble keeping the snail eaters alive. They're extremely messy eaters & high moisture levels vs. ventilation is a bear. Slugs seemed to disappear faster than snails, but the gelatinous leftovers were annoying. Most frustrating was watching snails thrive while their predator brethren struggled to survive/wouldn't eat.
thats awesome, you know the fish markets sell frozen snails(periwinkles) no slime to deal with,but ya gotta thaw them out.Well def a snail eater, it just finished one off.
