in the morning after feeding reggie i put his leftover insects in his salad. i know he eats some of them and i assume that means he ends up accidentally eating the salad as well. I put in bsfl, dubias, and crickets. the bsfl and dubias cant escape the bowl but i have to remove the crickets back legs. I just discovered that his crickets are able to escape without there back legs. i think they use the other bugs to boost themselves up. crickets are his favorite so i still want to add them but i have to remove pretty much all there legs for that. I was wondering if canned crickets would be ok just as a salad topper? it wouldnt replace his live crickets just help entice him for salads. hes around 8 weeks old and 5 inches long. i know live is best for them but I was wondering if it could still be used as a topper or if there are other problems with canned other than less nutrition?

You can---- see how long he goes for those canned ones versus the live ones-

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
