Live crickets 1/4" are:
• approximately 7 days old
• about halfway between live crickets 1/8" and live crickets 3/8" in size - perfect for a vast array of small animals (bearded dragons, chameleons, frogs, etc)
• extremely soft bodied - very easy for your animals to digest
• wingless - no wings makes them very easy for reptiles and amphibians to digest, and also means they are QUIET! (it's the rubbing together of a cricket's wings that makes the chirp)
This size cricket does NOT have any potato in the shipping container because small live crickets can be easily injured or killed by pieces of potato bouncing around in transit. Remember to add a food & water source upon receipt!
