haha...I wish. We've tried offering him kale, apple pieces, etc.. to add variety to his diet, but he's not the least bit interested. It won't be so bad this spring because we can switch over to primarly silkworms - they're quiet, stay wrapped up in a ball together around their mulberry mush, and Dex loves them too. No one will ship them right now because they're sensitive to temperatures.They're screaming "Save me! Save me! Save me!"
Can't you convince him to eat grass or something?
Eek - I couldn't imagine counting them! Our pet store has a tube with a filter type scoop. They have markings on the tube that say "25, 50, 75, 100" and that's approximately the number of crickets. They have one for the pinhead crickets and another for the larger ones. As long as it's somewhat close to the number we want, I don't really care if there's 93 in there or 100... lolOh yes. You reach in the tank, grab a handful and count the buggers as they fall into the bag. I used to hate the people who wanted anything more than 25.
