I'm getting a Beardie soon and I just wanted to find out what you think is better to feed, crickets or locusts? I know that dubia roaches are good too but they are quite hard to get around here, but pet supply store which is like 5 minutes walk from my house and I know that they sell crickets and locusts.
So yeah, which one do you think is best?
I haven't really heard of many people feeding locusts as a staple to bearded dragons- I'm guessing there is a reason for that as well. I'd stick to the crickets, dubias are also good if you can get your hands on some!
Locusts are a UK thing as far as I know. We don't have them here in the us so I've never looked into the nutrition of them. I expect they would be similar to crickets, nutrition wise. their colors and behavior habits are different and may influence how well they are taken. Is mix it up if I had the chance, I think locusts cost more.
Takin good care of your feeders can go a long way to making them a better food.
