My guy loves blueberries. I picked up 4 different types of greens yesterday see how he like them.

I hav to say rhino poop is so much better than my tegu he poops like 3x a day and it is brutal.

After lots of fruit he may take a day to eat his greens. They know what they like just like kids wound up on sugar:)

I agree,thats why i said maybe lay off the fruit and give just greens this way he only has greens to eat and use the fruit here and there.

Myself I like to hold back the fruits until someone is over to see him. He is then more than happy to eat from my hands.

got that right , i gave mine some fruit yesterday and he did not touch his greens today . But I put my hand in palm up , like i feed him treats and fruit and he ran right over to my hand . spoiled punk !!



i give mine peas , green beans , bell pepper ,acorn squash , watercres , figs , Repcal iguana food , Mazuri , hibiscus leaves and flowers , moringa tree leaves , catus leaves, a lot of greens , but like teguboy77 mine does not like vegies . going to back of fon friut and repcal as he's getting picky and spoiled and only eating the sweat stuff the last few days , i guess he going to get hungry for a few days until he drops his sweat tooth .

Yeah i never really gave my rhino alot of fruit anyway,cause when i use to keep green iguanas some years back they to seem to like the sweet stuff like fruit so i only offer that as a treat now to my rhino.I noticed to mine will sometimes only really eat more of the mazuri then his greens so i statred alternating them so he dont get use to eating more of the mazuri.Another thing my rhino doesnt like the repcal pellets so i dont give that to him anymore.Even when i offer mine fruit like grapes hes not that crazy over it,now the mazuri he loves lol he watches me make his food dish he wait's for it lol.

He pigged out on all his greens and vegies this morning, so i guess he was not as hooked on sweats as i though . I will give him some mazuri mid afternon when i am sure he's full fo greens .
