"Alright. I'll start with a sixty watt light bulb and buy one of those thermometer guns. Those sound really neat, I wish I would've considered that before getting someone to go get my a normal thermometer."

They make life so much easier! I just use plain bulbs for heat. I don't use a gun, but I do have a digital temp/humidity probe for accurate readings.


" But he started to climb and jump out so I went ahead and had my friend watch him while I cleaned his cage. "

I put mine in a cheap Rubbermaid container with a lid. I just close the lid and he's kinda stuck in there.

"Also, I'm having trouble getting him to eat. I know that the food I'm giving him is just for herbivores. I read the description and is says it even has an alluring scent for them. He doesn't seem slightly interested in it and it doesn't look like he's even ate in a few days. I switch food out every day, of course."

Like Cindy said, whole, fresh food is best. There are great posts below on good ig diets. Fresh greens like mustard, collard, turnip are best, mixed with veggies like green beans, squash, etc, and a little fruit. I do use commercial food, but not every day. I use it for when I'm going to be on vacation and have a pet sitter, if I'm out for a long day and I'm going to miss the second feeding, or just as a treat. The ig's main diet is whole, fresh foods. Dry foods should also by moistened, by the way, so they aren't dehydrating to the ig.
