oriental melon

Postby 666 » Thu Apr 04, 2024 6:06 am

Hello, I am a student from South Korea who breeds Blue Tongue Skinks. There isn't much information in Korea, so I'm asking here. I'm using a translator, so I'm really sorry if my interpretation is wrong!
I'd like to ask if anyone here has fed melons to their blue tongue skinks. Is it a good fruit?
It's really hard to get sweet fruits!

Fruits in general should only be given sparingly. I do not use at all, therefore no experience with melon.

According to this guide https://www.buffalobirdnerd.com/storage ... 5-2014.pdf your blue tongue skinks would enjoy fruits like figs, kiwi, apples, raspberries, strawberries and melons. Oriental melon should be fine in moderation.

I'm actually planning to visit South Korea for a vacation soon. I connected with some local guides at https://gowithguide.com/korea to help plan my trip. I'm curious - would it be okay to bring my blue tongue skink along or is it safer to leave them at home given the international travel? I'd hate to stress him out but also want to bring him because I'll be staying there for a month.
