dart frog food Review by JoAnna
my dart frogs like these better then the pin heads , they are shipped fast and come in a tube . i usually shake out some in the viv and then house the rest for later feedings . (Posted on 1/30/2019)
250 Count Banded Crickets Review by Jerrod
I ordered 250 1/8 inch banded crickets. All arrived alive and well and are now growing to become Chameleon food. (Posted on 9/4/2017)
Great substitute size for Hydei Review by Carol
When it became clear that I could not always count on the delivery folks to keep my Hydei cultures upright during shipping, I successfully switched to using this 1/8" size of crickets as a substitute as they came through the mail in excellent condition every time. When my first order arrived, I didn't realize that the crickets were housed in a white mailing tube - I thought it was present just to stabilize the 4 quart containers also in the box!. Don't expect them in a clear plastic container! (Posted on 7/4/2017)
Great size! Review by Jillian
These are really tiny, perfect for my baby day geckos. I've ordered crickets here several times and never have bugs that are DOA. Packaging is fantastic, it's just above temps for shipping but there are heat packs in every box. Several other retailers actually charge for each heat pack! (Posted on 1/4/2017)
