thank you, he is lovely
no he's not hard to care for, he's a lot easier than most of my pets
I keep him in quite a small vivarium he's fine with that because he doesn't move that much
i feed him on oak leaves, apple leaves, bramble leaves and apples and i have to spray him with water everyday,
and when it gets really cold i put a hot water bottle under his vivarium to keep him warm, and thats all the care he needs
normally when i show him to people they freak out
