It's just too sad that they are often marketed as "beginner's lizards" when they really are not.

I may be biased, but I think they are handsome as adults too.

I really like the set-up.
I just got a 9" Savanna and would like to know if i should use d3 in my calcium powder or not?
Thank you very much.

Depends on what you will be feeding.

For a Juvi, I would recommend a mix of roaches, crickets, earthworms and occasional pinkie mice.

One of the biggest internet arguments going is the mouse / no mouse controversy, and quite honestly it boils down to cage conditions.

If you have a nice 130-150 degree basking spot, then mice are no problem.

Sprinkle a little supplement on the worms, since they are sticky anyhow, the calcium powder will adhere to the worm slime.

I just feed good old fashion fishing night crawlers.

I use dubias well fed,pinkies,and a little ground turkey.
Just wondering about the d3. I bred beardies and did not use calcium with d3.

I have read that it's good for lizards and turtles, I believe it won't hurt, so why not?

I also use a 4 foot long UV 10.0 tube, and many others don't.

Toss in some worms sometime, Savs go wild over night crawlers. I catch them out in my yard when it rains.. free food.
