Thanks! Thats exactly the sort of info I was wondering about...
My lizards are going to stay in the newspaper for now..
I crumble up some and use plenty of layers and they seem quite comfortable. I can't seem to feed my young ones enough right now
so I switch between hopper rats and adult mice...I've been giving them smaller meals say 50% of what they'd eat every 4 or 5 days and they're growing fast
...they must have an amazing digestive ability though, I'm continually surprised at the cooler temps they prefer...and having kept monitors for years before, their feces can burn an indention in a porcelin bathtub or the finish on linoleum
so I'd imagine these monsters got some serious gut chemestry going on too...but then again I'm certain some folks on this board would have a lot better specifics... Thats just my 2 cents... really glad to hear your lizards recovering!

peace n
happy herps
