    Hoping to buy some soon, was wondering if they could share? It would be the original, not the LS.

    Yes they can, but mine wouldn't. I never tried the herbal hay, but that would be good for variety.

    I also haven't tried the herbal hay, but have used Mazuri. They had eaten Mazuri insectivore diet before so that may have helped get them to eat it since it was same/similar color.

    I wish my Beardie would eat a more balanced diet, but he only likes protein. Live hornworms, silk worms, crickets and superworms. He actually loves bananas, but I have heard its not good to feed, so its only a special treat. He's now 2 1/2 years old and 24" in length.

    What if you mixed the worms into the mazuri and get the dried worms and grind therm to a powder and sprinkle throughout a herbal hay?

    Why not?
    That's one of the great things about Mazuri. You can mix other stuff into it.
