    Hey 🙂 First Id just like to say I’m very sorry for the long message that’s about to come 😅. So I recently got my baby beardie. He’s 12 weeks old and today was the second day of having him. I did a lot of research before getting him such as looking into things like their diet and learning...

    Dear Reptile community, Every other week I kept finding crickets in my room. Today I came back from a surfing trip and found 8-10 crickets in my room! I used to have a background in my terrarium which the crickets would hide behind. I found out today since I removed the background and multiple...

    So Ive gotten tired of running to PetSmart to see if they maybe might have any crickets so Ive decided to just breed them on my own! I read online that heating pads were bad for the crickets because it may be to much and they have nowhere to run, but I dont know about the light either. Let me...

    I ordered x2 boxes of extra small feeder crickets by mistake. Would rather someone use them so not wasted. Free to collect only delivered today so they are fresh.

    Hello all, A bit of backstory: I have a female leopard gecko named Phoenix. I have encountered no health problems with her and she is growing normally and healthily. She is now a bit over a year old. I feed her domestic crickets from https://www.lllreptile.com/products/596-1000-crickets, and...

    Hi. I was going to call this looking after crickets but ultimately I'm feeding them (or my son is feeding them) to the gecko. The first lot were OK for a couple of weeks - then started to die off massively - 90% of those remaining died - and reptile shop was closed so bought another lot of...

So looking for ideas on who to use for good quality livefood at fair price. looking at about 40 boxes plus...

    Hi, I am very smart so when a cricket got away from my pac, I kind of left it in there. Fast forward to now, I got baby crickets in my pac's tank!!! Omg. I'm scared of an infestation of they get away so I don't want to remove the substrate now 'cause I can barely see them. Can the baby...

    Hey everyone! Brand new reptile owner here, and I've noticed this black beetle in my cricket box. I read up some stuff saying he was there to eat up dead crickets and stuff like that, but I wanted to make sure. Why exactly is he there? Can I feed him to my 2 month old leopard gecko safely? If...

    Hey guys! I recently finished my custom built 5ft x 3ft x 2ft (1.5m x 1m x .6m) terrarium for my Chinese Water Dragon Kiwi, and he loves it! He's about 8 months old and before moving him into his much larger cage he was on a diet of Crickets, Dubias, and wax worms as a treat. However with the...

    Hello all. So I have two female leopard geckos that will only eat crickets. I've tried meal worms, wax worms, and occasionally dubia roaches. It seems like they just don't notice them because they don't move around enough to get their attention. I've tried holding meal worms in front of them...

    Can anyone give me a heads up so I have the right food stocked and ready to go for a baby bearded dragon, what size crickets do I want and what is the recommended amount to buy so that 1. They last at least a few days and 2. Dont buy too many so that they die before I use them all. Also any...

    So yesterday I got my first beardie from a breeder. He's 3-4 months old and is generally really tame and active (thanks to a brilliant breeder). However he doesn't seem to want to eat much live food. Before getting him I researched in to how many crickets he should eat a day and he eats nowhere...

    I want to make my own, much bigger, better cricket housing. Only, I want to nick the concept of the pipes. (See Here, for my own, full, 'Road To Damascus'. story. I'm not one to hang about though. Or mug myself. These absolutely Tiny, and ridiculously expensive little boxes might suit the...

    :2thumb: Lawd! Back in the day ~ as, obviously, a great many of you recall with a certain level of anguish ~ keeping crickets went very much like this: Buy plastic boxes of the things. Bring them home. Open one. And They're Off!!! Just seemed like, no matter what ye did, these sods would take...

    Hi All, I was hoping for a bit of advice, I've kept reptiles for a fair few years but only recently became interested in T's. I've bought a few slings that are growing on nicely being fed on pre killed crickets. Because the slings don't eat a lot in a week the crickets die off and I end up...

    Hi there We have recently acquired four baby fire bellied toads. They are 2 months old but still pretty small. I'm a bit concerned about the feeding. I've asked advice from the local snake shop which is apparently the fountain of knowledge for all things amphibian/reptilian and they assure...
