  1. So i was cleaning out my lizard cages today and i got the idea to use there waste as a fertilizer. not a stand alone but i didnt know if it would benfit my plants at all. they are fed 100% plant matter so dont know what they could really offer the soil if any thing.

    Anyone have any ideas on this:confused:

    having one large iguana and another rhino iguana that is growing in size my supply wont be running out any time soon:devious:

  2. Mike,

    The most widely used manures are all from animals fed a plant based diet so your "lizard shit" would be no exception. Remember that most of the usable manures from mammals that are fed grass, alfalfa, hay, and other high protein feeds.

    The better quality of plant based feed you give your lizards, the better quality the manure/feces/shit will be. It might not be quite a stand alone fertilizer but it will no doubt contribute to a healthy soil.

  3. I have a feeling it won't hurt if you compost it, especially using worms.

    any chance you have a worm bin lying around somewhere?

  4. i wish. currently i rent so i dont have the space
  5. Maybe you could make tea from it. I used pecan worm shit before, their completely vegetarian- and it was fine. Same thing with cricket shit, but it is seriously potent when fresh.
  6. yea man theres lots ofprotien in insects dump that shit in the pot yo, cant hurt
