A neighbor had some crickets she bought for some frogs that died, so she was nice enough to give them to me...she had a pack of 36 that I fed my babies last night, and then she had some other ones, plus two spiders, in another container that we fed them tonight. It was Christmas for them scoring some tasty treats....but it was also Christmas for me WATCHING them score some tasty treats.

Dang, but I love these guys!

fish are a fun treat as well! My Peepers was scared of the fish at first, it was hilarious!

I did the fish too for my Cayugas....it was great fun, though it lasted all of 30 seconds!!!! When these babies get a bit bigger I will do it again for them!!

Hattie crix are SO easy to raise in something like a large rubbermaid. They just need egg crates and damp substrate to lay eggs in. I used to raise them for my geckos and toads. They do stink to high heaven though - but so do boughten crickets.

You can find details with a Google search
