NOW THIS IS A GOOD POST. You have hit it on the head. You probably have a few years experience actually observing alterna and learning their husbandry. The people who have finiky alterna are not giving them what they want. I have not only hatched but caught numerous hatchling alterna. I have on several occasions plucked a hatchling off of a cut, put it in a container and offered it s scelop - and guess what? In captivity 5 minutes and a "finiky" alterna is eating out of my hand.
