View Full Version : New sling, some q's
11-24-2010, 08:14 AM
So I just got a 1" L. parahybana sling, and as I've never taken care of a sling before, I have some questions.
- Should small crickets be okay for feeding?
- How can I put in a water dish that it won't drown in?
Any help you guys can be would be greatly appreciated. I hope everyone (in the US) is having a nice holiday.

to quickly answer your questions, ime LP slings will normally take down crickets nearly their size or smaller. mine has a massive appetite, and from what i've heard that's fairly common. i still crush the crickets heads at that size though.
also, no water dish until over 2". just keep a corner of the enclosure's substrate damp by misting/spraying.
they are fairly hardy slings, i wouldn't worry too much. and enjoy watching them grow! the growth between moults with them is crazy!
