Thank you for your reply Mark. I've done a lot of reading on that site after checking some of the other threads in this forum.

I appreciate your words of warning and take them into consideration. I am confident that I can keep these guys, but if that ever goes in doubt or I slip a bit in my care I will take them back to exactly where I caught them since they were both captured within about 100 yards of my house.

I have an ample supply of ants here, but also have an ant supplier about 20 minutes from where I live as well. http://www.infowest.com/life/hornfood.htm

Like you said, this current tank size is inadequate for adults...do you think I should immediately upgrade, or will this do for their present size?

I have them in a non-air conditioned room in our house that has an large window that allows indirect light all day and about 10 hours where half the cage is in direct sunlight for basking. From what I had read this sounded like a good location as it should keep the cage at about their native temperature and allow them to choose whether to bask or not.

Thanks for your concern and advice.
