Scrub land is not Desert/Savanna and has wet/dry seasons. Gerrhosaurus validus is not aquatic but is known to live near river/stream banks and will swim on occasion for necessity. As far as Catfood they are all very close in Ash, Magnesium, corn, Fat, and Protein content. Science Diet however has alot of Poulty by-products (leftovers from slaugther house) and Potassium Chloride which I don't particularly care to feed my animals but it is a matter of preferance. Ectotherm Yummies has too much DIE in it for me to try.
I would give him at least a month of acclimation before I would try handling regime, this will allow for deparasitation.
