: I know its the 75/25 thing, but when your dealing with the food i don't get it. Is it three pieces of fruit to one cricket? How much fruit and the whole cricket? Someone please help me out. Also, is gliderade necessary? Thanks. Later,

Their are so many different diets. This is what I give my gliders.

leadbeaters---loves it to death
2 grapes slices in half
a slice of apple pealed
orange slices cut up
cucumbers--loves it to death
one of these, pear, peach, cherry, cantolope, watermelon.
2or3 mealworms each.

I try to give them different types of food. I thought about it one night.
How much I would hate it if I got the same food night after night.
I change the food around. I also sometimes feed them, white fish--plain,
boiled shrimp--plain, crab legs--plain. They love seafood. onec in awhile
they'll somehow get into the contain of nuts I have, and pig out.>sigh<
Oh...forgot...they LOVE...and I mean LOVE sweet corn. Hope this helps you out
some. I've got healthy, happy gliders. :) Good Luck

Nikki, Wickit, and Little Bit
