  • Great for bird rehab

    By on

    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.

  • Bearded Dragon loves his crickets

    By on

    It's weird to be reviewing a can of crickets but our Beardie loves them. He's a juvenile so these small crickets are the perfect size for him. I like that I don't have to keep live crickets in our home and these bugs are moist and juicy right out of the can.

  • Great prices, fast shipping and amazing customer service.

    By on

    The pricing beats my local pet store by $2.50, which is good because we go through these cans like nuts with our juvenile beardy. These are a great backup to live crickets as our beardy simply loves them. Recently placed an order...30 minutes later I was reminded I also needed Can O' Crickets...called CS and they fixed me up right away and added it to my previous order to avoid shipping costs. Great product at an astounding price. Thank you.

  • It's Incredible (Duh)

    By on

    Exactly what you'd expect. Itty bitty crickets that can be swallowed up by any turtle, lizard or snake with no problem. Sam and Vic go crazy when I put the crickets in their tank.

  • Good Deal!!!!!

    By on

    My crested gecko loves these and he isn't entirely full grown yet so the small crickets are perfect for him! There are a TON of crickets in there. I have just kept them refrigerated and so far they have been okay.

  • They're crickets!

    By on

    They're crickets. They're what you expect. We have them for our quail, and she loves them. So, bird approved.
