    very easy to see if not a pterinochilus by seeing if there is a cream/white band on the underside of the abdomen (like in poecilotheria regalis)
    Augacephalus breyeri females have really long setae on the sternum and don't have an extensive dense fringe on the femur like Augacephalus junodi.
    what you have is most likely Augacephalus ezendami which is the most common in the hobby (dont even think breyeri is in the hobby to any great extent nor is junodi except in a few collections but they are around) funny enough from what I know,the males of ezendami seem to key out as breyeri and the females key out more or less as junodi! females of ezendami are not normally as large as junodi though from what I read.
    help at all?

    i would suggest not feeding your ig too late before bedtime as the food wont digest as well as it should and we all know how crap indigestion is.
    seraphines lights are 645am - 645 pm, for me he eats in the morning and then i will feed him a lot or a little depending on the time in the evening.
    if i am hom,e for 5 ish then i will get him out and have some "us" time which is when i feed him usually from my hand.
    good luck and dont hesitate to gain more knowledge.

    btw kale and lettuce are crap foods. it was just an exapmle about picky eating

    hi john,
    back from jollies and seraphine is well lol. my carers did a good job.
    conformity is good mate.. at least your following the correct dieteray requirements.
    keep going with it mate. dont let your ig become a fussy eater tho.
    if need be reduce or -omit the watercress for now then he will have to eat everything else when he is hungry.then introduce them again.
    a lot of igs get hooked on kale and lettuce and their owners think its ok. NOT. lol
    you sound like your doing well.
    regards feeding mate, give him as much as possible, if you have the time then when one plate is finished pout anopther one there.
    i would aim for at least twice a day. ( which is hard i know. i usually give him his full meal in the morning and when i get home from work. either something "treaty" or usually i have him out and let him eat from my hands.

    he also has as part of his staples pea shoots when i can get them.
    my advice to you would be to follow the GIS food chart, and vary it as it suits you. this is what i did/do
    dont let boss start to become a fussy eater.
    on a comical note. i gave seraphine baby food today, he lapped it up but got it all over his face. lol.
    his most fave food seems to be peas, i dont give them as much as i used to but he loves them he will pick them out of his bowl. i like to think he likes they way they pop in his mouth.
    hope thats food for thougth lol. good luck. we are both weell. although i am going away for 11 days and he is being looked after :-S.

    hi john, my boy gets spring greens and watercress and rocket and a bag of mixxed leaves, ( these usually have loads of spinach in them so i pick out them leaves)
    he will occasionally have parsnip when i remember to buy them, also butternut squash peeled and finely chopped/grated. he also has figs, he really likes them. ( if you get the dried ones, boil some water and slice them up and soak them till they are nice and soft.) ( make sure you dont feed your iggie boiling water) i like giving him figs because i pour the water that they have soaked in with the veg and he usually drinks it at the end.

    hi john cobb.
    NO insects or meat protein whatsoever , i cant stress this enough to owners
    forget the mixed opinions as they are from outdated sources. when they say they have seen igs eat insects they are prob stray insects stuck on leaves.
    iguanas can be opportunisic feeders so it may be poss that they have eaten meat but their bods arent designed to process it, my seraphine tries to eat my bedroom carpet but it doesnt make him a rug muncher lol.
    iguanas have a gut designed to breakdown vegetable/leaf protein and remove the required calcium and nutrients from this.
    they are not designed to eat meat as the protein will strain the kidneys and cause major probs, everything should be atainable from the veg and fruit you provide coupled with calcium powder and as you said water and temps and light. Int he wild they have access to a large vartiety of plants ( which arent really documented :-() it is up to us to provide an equal or equivalent.
    let me know what you think. mahender
