This has been really Making me scratch my brain A lot for a long time now.... why are grasshoppers only sold as freeze dried or can what's wrong with live grasshoppers just wondering maybe it's the wings or the legs not sure but I've also heard that they are illegal to sell in the usa? I'm not sure where I just remember reading that somewhere online it was just curious as if anyone has any answers about this!

Yes they are illegal in most of the US. Maybe because they can multiply really quick and become a real plague (a female will lay up to 300 eggs)

This is definitely why. I think California is one of the few places they aren't illegal (imagine that, everything else is) but I definitely recall a few times as a child living in the country where we would get an absolute plague of them every few years. You could not drive down the road without squishing tens of thousands of them, and it didn't make a dent in their population.

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.
