I did see that frank addressed this further on but I will as well since murrindini did as well and you kind of blew off his answer.
Waters are my species of choice and have been for almost 20 yrs. I have had both successes and failures but I have learned from the failures.
I seldom if ever feed a hatchling water, insects, I have found in the past that some will take insects but some can't stand them and want vertebrate prey. They start out on pinkies within a few weeks they are big enough to take fuzzies and it goes up from there.
Ignore all the dimwitted savanah keepers on here, they may argue till hell freezes over on what to feed their savannahs, waters eat vertebrates.....well actually they will eat anything they can get in their mouths including a savannah (lol). But in captivity the most cost effective diet you can get is rodents and they do the job just fine.
