well locusts or crixs some people prefer locusts and an older beardie finds them much easier to catch BUT large winged Locusts are far to big never feed a lizard anything bigger than the gap between there eyes. I feed mine 2-3 locusts a day and fresh veg everyday normally put a fresh lot in morning and evening

personally, let him eat what he wants.

i would feed large locusts (not adults), couple every day, mixed with plenty of veg/salad.

like i said, this is personaly. not everyone will agree

there isnt really any difference in locust/crix

crix are cheaper, but they smell, escape, make noise etc

locust are more expensive, but as long as you feed them first, they are just as good as any other
