Are these good for hedgehogs?
Answer by ChewyOct 19, 2017
This product is ideal for hedgehogs.

Do these provide as much nutrition as live crickets? I have a leopard gecko.
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2019
These cricket treats are designed for the best in nutrition and convenience. The full line-feeder insects are cooked in the can, to lock in the flavor and freshness while softening the insect's exoskeleton for easier digestion. Unlike live food, Can O'Crickets can be kept for about a week in the refrigerator after it has been opened.

Hi I was curious if a 7’ bearded dragon could eat this I believe he’s 2 months old
Answer by ChewyMay 20, 2019
These crickets have a softened exoskeleton for easier digestion and are suitable for juvenile bearded dragons that are larger than 2 inches.

Can green/Bahaman anoles consume these?
Answer by ChewyOct 13, 2017
It's safe for anoles to eat Can O' Crickets.

Despite popular belief, these are amazing for reptile (leopard geckos to be more pacific). I have found that they last over two months in the refrigerator and close to three months in a glass jar instead of the can it came in.

Good for what it does, minor issues

My geckos love these, only problem is, they go bad within 3 - 4 days after opening, and my two geckos don't eat them all. If they could be frozen, they'd last much much longer. My two eat daily about 3-5 I end up wasting half the can because the crickets grow fuzzy by day 3. (I have a young gecko under a year old, and I have a rescue with MBD, do to softness in his jaw, he can't eat more then 5 a day if we are lucky do to his jaw and the soreness in the joints. I'd get him on a proper feeding schedule of once every three days since he's an adult if he wasn't wounded.)

Rancid! Don’t buy!

I got these in a starter pack for reptiles. I opened them and they already smelled terrible. I cut them in half for my leopard geckos and tried to feed them. Both babies HATED them. They sniffed them but would walk away. Within a week they smelled even worse (I didn’t him think that was possible?) and appeared moldy. I do not recommend at all!

No go for my parrot Tinga!

Unfortunately she hates people food except for chicken, an occasional pea and grapes... she HATED the crickets. She is a Lafaber girl all the way. She's a 23 yr old Nanday Conure!!

Canned crickets

These crickets were interesting.. my turtle only ate one and then just wanted heads. Spit out wings.. Koi in the pond loved them!!

The BEST canned food

My bearded dragon attacks these as soon as I put them in his tank. He was raised on live dubias but now is bored with them so I have switched to these with the occasional horned worm for a treat. I dust these with calcium, place them on the floor of his tank and he dives for them. It only takes 5-10 to fill him since they are so large. I can't believe I wasted time with Flukers which I now see are total garbage. Love these for my guy.

Painted Turtles Liked!

Great little can of MEGA size, juicy, very plump and freshly preserved crickets! I like to switch up our two captive-born, painted turtles diets so they don't get bored, and don't care for potential escapee crickets on the loose if live are fed. So this was a good option. Our turtles are five and six years old, both a male and female, with shells about the diameter of a 5 inch (male) and 8 inch salad plate (female), and they were tearing these rather XL crickets apart and leaving big chunks of arms, legs, and heads left sinking to the bottom of the tank and cricket guts and debris flying all throughout their water. Mealtime was a bit messier than usual or expected. Our turtles also aren't very smart and unless you either direct food straight into their dumb little mouths or tap to where they'll find it, they never do, so unfortunately there was a significant portion left uneaten and sifted out. I think I'll only get these for a treat once in a while. One thing to note, they did go "rancid" in their juices sealed in the can after some handful of days, so they needed to be fed and eaten pretty quickly, not something to sit for a week or two like freeze-dried foods.

My hedgehog loves these

My hedgehog loves his can o' crickets! Unfortunately I can't feed live crickets since he is in an open cage, but these serve as a great alternative.
