let me say im no expert. i bought 2 wc saharans last year and when the male i purchased started loosing weight an dnot eating greens, 1 of the "experts" INSTRUCTED ME TO FEED INSECTS and ill be damned if that male is still going strong he preffers insects over greens but also dandelions over insects. i say they are opportunistic feeders in the wild and eat what they can when they can. insects can be seaonal just as veggies are in the desert. 1 season could be bugs and another blooming flowers with the next one beeing greens after the blooms have dropped. so if your uro eats them feed them to him, but the whole majority will agree taht the diet should be varied and seeds should always be available. give greens with the occasional bugs and youll be fine
