    I’m Elmer! I just turned six months old today! I love people watching and eating my favorite grubs! I’ve got some waxworms and mealworms in my dish now!

    Hi Elmer and Happy Birthday. Be sure to tell your Mommy/Daddy that waxworms and crickets are way better for you than mealworms, cuz mealworms are really hard for you to digest.

      I usually only get a couple of mealworms a day (usually 2 or 3) and I eat a lot of live crickets! They’re my favorite! Today is my birthday, so I got a treat: a few extra mealworms and some waxworms! Yummy!

        Oh good Elmer, I’m glad you have a balanced diet. Do you eat your veggies like a good boy?

        Yes! My favorite is Bok Choy! I get a big salad every day!

    Love the name! And looks like Elmer has a well-funrished habitat. Can you share a pic of the enclosure?

        I see what you mean by needing a bigger enclosure very soon. How do you like the lighting set up that you are currently providing? Do you feel it is adequate? How does it perform when it comes to bulb replacement?

        For now, I feel like it’s a good set up. The bulbs respond very well when they are replaced. I’d like to get a UVB that covers a larger portion of his next tank, but it’s pretty expensive.

        Yes, they can get pricey. What brand are the ones you are using now?
