I don't feed lizards, living in east Texas, I don't have access to anything but anoles and I would feel pretty guilty taking enough lizards out of the wild to feed a fairly large collection. I do trap wild mice for my breeding females, there is no way to know if this helps or not since I started doing it at the same time as I lowered my temps. And no, I don't feel guilty about taking enough mice from the wild to feed my snakes. I did breed Alterna successfully for years without feeding wild mice and also with heat tape but I think over the years, I raised the temps more and more until it became a problem.
Hey bob,give me a call sometime, last couple of times I tried to email you, it kicked back.
