Hi

I feed mine squash. They go NUTS for squash. Butternut squash is even better. They eat cucumber as well but cucumber decomposes really fast so you have to remove it in a day tops. They like fish flakes, zuchinni and I have even given them romanie lettuce when I have nothing else to give them. A piece or rotten wood in their enclosure helps too. They love that.

True. Thank you, I forgot to specify that. They mind diet is the substrate where I keep them which is rotten wood and leaf mulch. The rest I feed as supplements here and there.
