What to feed?
In many cases, the same items which are recommended for cats. But a good selection would be day old chicks (for youngsters), whole mice, pieces of rabbit, chicken thighs, chicken liver.
Much of this food can be purchased from your local butcher or pet store - particularly those stores who specialise in reptile supplies.
