Awwww! He is so cute. I love when they are that small, they are so cute. I remember when my female was that big. Oddly my Leo, the male, came home when he was in the third or fourth stage.

Yes, make sure to feed the crickets with calcium dust covered veggies, like lettuce, red pepper, and the things that your beardie would eat to make them more nutrtitional.

Oranges work great! That is the only thing I have found that works.

That's wierd. The crickets (and Marley, my male beardie) absolutely adore parsley and red peppers. For some reason whenever Marley eats them he goes completely hyper lol

I thought beardies are not supposed to have parsley and red peppers.

No, occasional parsley is fine (I give it to him about once a month, just a small sprig cut up in his salad) and red peppers are really good for vitamins and calcium, i think it is. This has been vet-approved information! ;)
