    i have 2 straws. the only difference with them and other species, is they require. the temp and humidity to be 80/80. also need water bowls that are deep enough for the straw to submerge in.

    and also get foods that are hight in carotine (can't spell) like carrots, and um, i can't think of any other foods off the top of my head. Vicki's store has a straws mix that i get and has everything a straw needs in it's diet. they also obviously need alot of room to climb plus they def. live up the the nickname of "tank destroyer" so make sure your decor is secure. or else you'd have to fix the decor every night. lol

    my two straws are so sweet they definally warm up pretty quickly. they come out as soon as i pick them up. Good Luck with your straw!!
