    _______________________________________________________________
    This diet comes in two forms: a small pellet and a gel.

    Pellet
    I found that many of my lizards were not crazy about the eating the small, brown pellet by itself. However, they did eat this diet when it was mixed with other ingredients. I found it to be a good mix-in with veggies for bearded dragons or BTS, and ground turkey or egg for tegus.

    Gel
    It was hard to find a good balance for the mixing directions at first. The directions indicate a mixture ratio by weight. I ended mixing approximately 1 part powder to 2 parts water. The end product is a fibrous gel. It was easy to form, cut, and feed to my lizards, frogs, axolotl, and box turtles.
