Has anyone had any luck with short horn hatchlings this year?
I've inherited a group of new hatchlings this year. After about a month they are all doing well, except I lost the runt, and also lost one to the mother, who was hungry I guess. They are eating bruchid beetles and crickets and ants from Michigan. (Thanks Outdoorsman). They had fruit flies for the first few weeks. Now they are eating crickets from Petsmart. I'm amazed at their ability to eat prey much larger than a cornutum hatchling this age could even consider. They are lighting fast on the crickets, which is far different from solare hatchlings.

The day I got them all I put them in their own enclosure. They were basically abandoned by the person who brought the female home from a camping trip after she dropped six little ones, so I took them in. After warming up she ate one of them. Nothing I could do. Again, like lightning.
