I didn't want to let 2 dozen crickets go to waste with hungry geckos so I tied a piece of thread around the back leg of each cricket and fed them off one at a time. The geckos would see the swinging bug and bite at it and miss and bite again.......I haven't had that much fun since :wink: .

    :lol: ha ha fishing for geckos!

    :?: Do you all think that hand-feeding or switching them to a small container w/ crickets will make them too lazy to hunt them after a while :?: Just wondering...

    I have a few that get so excited at mealtime that they will take the offering (crickets or roaches) AND your hand sometimes too

    Old faithful loves them so much. She loves when I hand feed her. My orange female also will eat crickets from my hand.
