I used to keep crickets for my lizards and these in the can is so much easier. I put a little calcium powder on them,and put them in the dish and my beardie leaps from his branch and devours them, wanting more .My sugarglider likes them too.

cuts the run for crickets in half, I prefer to feed them by hand or using a chop stick. Since they are per-cooked they are fairly soft. The smell seems to to entice feeding.

I've been getting Zoo Med's Can O'Crickets for about six years now. I have a white's tree frog who is partially blind so she has trouble catching live food. The crickets in the can are huge and seem to be full of nutrients. My frog has never looked better. I love ordering them because they're cheaper then in the stores and get delivered quickly. The only downside is that they go bad faster than my frog can eat them. But I know some people freeze the extra crickets. I haven't tried that. These are perfect for anyone with a special needs pet or someone who doesn't want to deal with the hassle of live food.

My sugar Gliders run out from there sleeping pouches every time I wiggle the can of these (and also the meal worms by the same company) They start chirping like crazy when they are eating them too. I don't like to feed live insects to them but sometimes when I'm out I will get them some so they don't get too used to me feeding them there meals by hand.... but I do admit, these are WAY better them feeding live crickets!!!!! (I'm a little squeamish when it comes to killing things myself) love this product!! and Demitree and Anya love them even more :D (my sugar gliders if you did not get that :P)

I own a Pixie Frog and a Tokay gecko. I try to provide a varied diet for my animals. Unfortunately Petsmart has a rampant chytrid fungus problem in their African dwarf frog populations and the same employees who count out the live foods are reaching around in the infected tanks.I didn't want to feed my animals the dried crickets because I believe they need the moisture content. I was overjoyed when I found these canned crickets. The large size ones are ENORMOUS!! I have never gotten a cricket this big in any live feeder store. My pixie frog/African bullfrog eats them enthusiastically from my tongs or if I place them in front of him and wiggle them a little with the tongs.My Tokay is less enthusiastic about the canned crickets and shows a preference for the live ones, but she too will eat them from the tongs if she is hungry.These are much easier to dust with vitamins too, since they are already dead and won't go jumping into the water dish right away. I keep mine in the freezer if I can't use them all in a week.

My sugar gliders love this. It's the first thing they go for at meal time and they never get tired of it.
