Cricket size for beardie

Postby Dragonfury866 » Sat May 30, 2020 6:51 pm

My beardie is almost 8 months old and she is 15 inches long. I’m switching to crickets for a little while and I’m not sure what size is good for her. I know people say nothing bigger than the space between their eyes, but is it width or length?

She should be able to eat medium size for sure --- try those --- what are you normally feeding her? Are you feeding salads and worms as well as part of her diet?

I’m feeding her Phoenix worms and salads about every couple days with any combination of carrots, dandelion greens, and butternut squash.

She needs salads everyday along w/ insects- I would look at ordering her some dubia roaches they are a great staple feeder-- if you need websites for roaches and worms silk worms are another great staple feeder--- let me know I can post websites for you

Okay, I’ll provide her salads every day, but I can’t get dubias. I’ve had them in the past, but I’m only 17 and my mother is very against roaches in the house. Are phoenix worms and crickets healthy as a staple?

Yes and silk worms- they are a good supplement to your bsfl (Phoenix worms) and crickets- here is a website for silk worm and super worms-- www.reptilianarts.com -- if you order silk and your order bulk like 50 make sure you get food you will need to feed everyday and clean their containers out daily
