As the thread title suggests . . .

I picked this guy up at a reptile expo this weekend. I know the basic care (warm, humid, dark cave to hang upside-down in), but was wondering if this was an adult and what species it is. I'm guessing it's Damon diadema, but I could be wrong. I'm also guessing I have a female.

Also, what have people found are the best feeders for these? I've got a B. lateralis roach in with it, but I know some inverts are picky when it comes to roaches.

Thanks! :)

Looks like a subadult to me but then again I dont know how big your hand is. Crickets/roaches are good feeders. Dont keep them too warm. They do better with temps in the 70sF.
