Default Re: White Crickets?

Hello,
Why do some of my crickets turn white? Is it okay to feed the white crickets to my Anoles?

Regards
Danielle E.

utside of the body and the crickets have to shed it in order to grow. White crickets are ones that have just shed and are softer than other crickets you will notice and after a while the outer shell will harden and be normal color but you can feed the crickets while their white. HTH

i think its better to feed them when the crickets have no hard skeleton because it would be easier to digest and eat. sprinkle them with calcium powder when you do.
