I"ll go on a limb and say any invertebrate that won't harm it back.

LOL I think most insect feeders? I know I read mealworms somewhere. I think I may have also read cockroaches too. More than likely if you prekilled it (such as a superworm ect) and then fed with forceps would work.

btw, Welcome to the forums!

honestly, cickets meal worms and/or roaches are just fine and they don't really need anything else.

As for other worms, they work just fine but things can get messy, you know, with the pinching and a worm being squishy and all, it doesn't make for a pretty picture.
