    Default Minor panic question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I was putting the Dubia roaches in for Donnie and two escaped. They are in his enclosure.

    If they were crickets, I'd end up pulling everything apart to find them because I don't want them attacking him when he's asleep or something, but what about the roaches??

    First breathe deeply, but DON'T hyperventilate.

    Dubia have a tendency to hide. They could even hide from Donnie.


    Even though I feed crickets 99% of the time to my leo Cha, I amputate their back legs at the knees so they can't jump out of their Anchor brand, 8 ounce bowl. When I'm feeding and a cricket "lands" outside the bowl, but inside the enclosure I catch it right away & place it in the food bowl.

    Obviously it wouldn't be a good idea to put tons of feeders in a cage with a debilitated gecko, but I've had no problem putting small numbers of crickets in a cage with healthy geckos and having some stay in there for a snack.

    As a quick update, Donovan found and ate the dubia escapee this morning as a quick snack.

    What a breakfast treat! You're doing a great job finding your bugs, Donnie!
