    I've been looking for some information about Oleander hawk moths. I've found plenty of information about them in the wild, but I'm interested to know about their captive care. This is primarily for research purposes opposed to me wanting to keep them, but if anyone who has kept them could...

I'd like to add frogs or other lizards. but if you have spent any amount of time researching the care or reptiles, you will know it's a big no no.

    Hiya all, I've been looking about, and ended up looking at alternative livefoods. Anywho, I've read that silkworms are a better stable nutritionally than mealworms. Is this true?
