    My 5 month old beardie loves these crickets!!! It’s nice because they are small, they are NOT dry at all, and a great alternative to live crickets. After I open them I put the can in a ziploc and keep them refrigerated. I mix them in with his greens/veggies. I really wish the cans were larger because we go through them very quickly.

    sparrow rehab

    By johnt on Jun 26, 2021

    thankful for these...have been hand feeding from since it was a day or two old and now we are 3 weeks from release and these crickets are perfect for weaning off hand feeding. They actually smell pretty good and she loves these (and grapes).

    my turtle liked these but.....

    By AnaS on Mar 25, 2021

    These were fun while they lasted, I kept em in the can and would feed it to my turtle during feeding he loved em. Unfortunately within 3 days of opening the crickets grew white fuzzy mold... I had to throw away a can that was 85% full! And my turtle had no crickets.

    She loves them

    By RustysMom on Apr 3, 2021

    She loves them but. I think they are to dry for the lizards to swallow. She seems to have problems in that area so I wet them down

    By Bogie on Aug 31, 2020

    Bogie doesn't like just any cricket. But he loves these Mini Can O' Crickets!! He gives them one glance and gobbles them up. I am assuming by this that he is saying, Yummy!!

    By Lulu on Jun 10, 2019

    She (I think it was a she, not sure though) gobbled these up! Fresh crickets in a can! Way easier than catching them in the fields.

    Can of Crickets

    By Kassie on Jan 26, 2019

    Great Product, but wouldn't recommend for a hedgehog. My hedgehog didn't like them at all. He likes dry bugs instead of wet ones.

    Great for bird rehab

    By SeptimusMama on Aug 22, 2018

    When my baby bird was ready for solid food, it didn't really like freeze-dried mealworms or crickets, so I decided to try these. I thought they might be gross since they are packed in "natural juices," but they just smell like olives. And the bird LOVES them and comes hopping towards me with mouth open as soon as he/she sees me bring out the can.
