I went away on hliday for 2 weeks an just emptied a box of crickets into my viv while my Leos were at the pet shop for 2 weeks - I come back and BY GOD THEY MAHOOOOOSIVE never seen crickets so big - theres 1 that I think is the king of the viv atleast while I was abscent anyway and he had an army of little crickets on the sand an like soldiers around where he was.

It was scary - then I brought my leos home an my big mean male chomped on the king while my small female ate all the babys now theres none in there.

Just thought id express lol

Jus curious as how they got so big

How come the pet shop wasnt feeding your leos for you while they stayed at the shop?
?? They did - I got my leos back and they were bigger than they were nice fat tails an broader - what m saying is when I put my leos in the tank they ate the remaining crickets that where in there not all but the majority

Everytime I buy a tub of crickets, there's always a "king" in with the babies! He never shuts up - always shouting orders at his army of little soldiers!
