Apparently the struggling of the live insect triggers the production of digestive juices and all that. It's all a bit blood-thirsty ...

They were still warm ... caught with the electric fly zapper - so NEARLY live...

Will do a trip to homebase then!

I read that you have to feed it live flies ...

I bought DS one in Homebase a couple of weeks ago - they were at the checkout - impulse buy!

Not looking too healthy now though despite DS feeding it flies!

Do they? They seem a bit exotic for garden centres for some reason. I've killed cacti before so I'm a bit reluctant. Though we have a good crop of stuff in the garden this year which is probably giving a false sense of hope ...

Most garden centres sell them. I've never had any luck, I always manage to kill them.

Just that, really. DS2 wants one and I guess it's not a bad idea...
