One thing I forgot to mention... what state did you catch the racer in? Soon my wild caught racers are going to slow down and eventually stop eating for the winter. There are two options if this happens. Put it into hibernation in the low 50's somewhere in a basement or a closet. Or you can trick it into thinking it is summertime still by keeping it in a room without windows, and leaving the light on in the room for 14 hrs on and 10 hrs off and keep the cage warm/hot.
