every where i have read not to feed our darts ants, why? Ants are a part of their diet in the wild, matter fact i just went to the zoo in Tulsa OK and they had their green and black auratus out in the open (about 60 of them!!) And i spoke to the herp man and asked about their diet since i noticed them devouring the ants, and he said that is their main diet and that they supplement with fruit flies and pin head crickets. by the way if anyone is visiting OK anytime soon i HIGHLY recomend visiting the Tulsa Zoo and seeing thier rain forest exhibit to see thier auratus section it is unbelievable!!!
