View Full Version : Anyone feed ASFs to their tegu?

I'm breeding my own feeders.(dubias, hissers, supers soon, mice, rats and ASFs)
I haven't had a conscious, feeding tegu to try feeding any African Soft Fur rats yet.
Have any of you tried them? I'm looking to completely switch over to ASFs because I have them in the house and ASFs do not stink hardly at all opposed to the lab mice and rats I have that absolutely wreak if not changed out like twice a week. Who's got time and supplies for that when you have a choice? I may keep some regular rats but he mice are outa here!

Thanks so much for your response!
These guys are kickin butt now! I've had them for about a month now and both females were apparently prego when I got them. So far they've produced 17-18 babies(won't sit still for counting!) within 10 days of getting them and one had 8 more today! At this rate I think they may actually be able to keep up with the soon to be 3 tegu hatchlings I'll have hopefully craving ASFs! The only thing is I hope to have a few pairs of babies ready to breed by the estimated March awakening of the extremes. They'll be hungry lil suckers I'm certain!
