    When I brought my T from the pet shop the guy gave me locusts to go with it and told me that’s what I should be feeding him but recently many people have been telling me to switch from locusts as they are apparently not the best of choices for a T’s diet for a number of reasons. Is this true and if so what should I be feed my T?

    Thanks.

    Theres nothing wrong with locusts. Roaches or superworms will be more nutritious though. You can always mix it up.

    Dubia or superworms would be good for a T that size.
