hey i have a juvi archispirostreptus gigas [i think] and it's been nipping at me. seriously, it was biting me. i've read that this may mean it's low on protein? could this be why? and, if so, what should i feed it to get more protein?

thanks and God bless

Give it some melon rind and see if it stops.
Melon rind has protein? Never thought about that one. Interesting. I've read that it's okay to mix some dry dog food into their soil for protein. That seems easy and safe, or am i wrong?

Actually it contains important amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins but my suggestion was in reference to food value. Mixing dry dog food into the soil is a recipe for fouling and mite infestations.
