My skinks ( eastern BTs , eastern water skink & now a delicate rainbow skink (rescue this week when it's nest was disturbed while I'm getting major yard landscaping works done) to use about 20 cu m of fill that is the result a driveway revamp and extension and a garage extension from 6m x 6m to 6m x 9m ) all like their live insects and salad (with sliced hardboiled egg added occasionally)..
So it's crickets, woodies (roaches) , silkworms ( I am self sufficient with these ) , snails ( I buy live by the punnet occasionally ) , large BSF lavae as my scale babies' staples , and occasional mealworms (all stages) + supers (all stages) as occasional treats.
My 2 adult BTs get two large silkworms per day as their main protein staple - only because I always have these for my bearded dragons and eastern bluetongue skinks.
The water skink wont touch a silkworm grub ( I've offered her small ones about 1 inch) but she goes banana's for silkworm moths.
The little rainbow skink loves tiny silkworms.
I have a tin of dog food stashed away as an emergency protein source as well as a bottle of GrubPie and a packet of Wombaroo Reptile Mix and big bottle of VetaFarm Lizard Pellets as emergency lizard foods should I ever need them if we have another earthquake or another Tasman Sea Tropical Cyclone and getting live foods becomes hard .http://www.repashy.com.au/index.php?rou ... path=59_63
, can't get their BTS mix here in Australia.https://vetafarm.com.au/product/lizard-food/http://www.wombaroo.com.au/reptiles/reptile-supplement
I choose to not give cat or dog food to my pet lizards ( skinks , dragons and there was a gecko too who has escaped and is now back where we found him) as I prefer my pets to eat a diet more like what their wild cousins do and I think they enjoy the hunt as much as I enjoy watching them hunting / stalking and catching their diner.
