Beardie ball!!!

Postby Benderisgreat321 » Thu May 06, 2021 12:05 pm

Marie-boo has her own harness that my husband and I take her in our yard and on our deck with for some natural sun. We were in petsmart today stocking up on various insects (super worms, horn worms, roaches, crickets... normal grocery list). I found this thing called a beardie ball. I've given her balls to play with before, but she just normally ignores them. This one you can put food in. I figured why not...

I got her out on our deck, popped in a super worm... and she actually played with the darn thing... and was proud of herself for 'winning'! I'm just a tad disappointed it's not more challenging, but she likes it... when food is in it, of course. Has anyone else used these? What's your experience with them?

Yup, I am, but it's almost right next door. So close we walk to it, and all of them know us by name. I would not say no to cheaper options, though. Horn worms at the petsmart are ridiculous.

Yes horn worms at pet smart here are $10 for 4 -- I can get medium usually they ship small from here www.dubiaroaches.com a cup of 12 are $5 I am thinking plus roaches are cheaper here as well I shop multiple websites tho--
https://flukerfarms.com/crickets-live-feeder-insects/ they have great supers they are large tho so your baby may not be able to eat them yet -- they come in a tube so you will need a container that has holes in the lid and you would need bran to feed them -- carrots for hydration
https://reptilianarts.com/ they have nice silk worms -- if ordering by cup they come w/ food if ordering by bulk they come small and NO food
http://www.mulberryfarms.com/ they have nice butter worms -- they are spendy tho -- spendy on one container of horn worms -- two containers are too much they grow too fast for me to feed
www.symtonbsf.com nice BSFL order large and do not dust them they are a great staple feeder for babies -- I used them as salad toppers to get him to the salad bowl
