The basics:
The Black Field Cricket is one of the most common cricket species raised as live feed for pet reptiles such as lizards, spiders such as tarantulas, and amphibians. Gryllus bimaculatus is native to tropical and subtropical areas of Africa, Asia and Europe.

The Black Field Cricket can be purchased in tubs from breeders or pet stores, or can be raised by pet owners. "Gut loading" the feeder crickets with nutritious foods and calcium supplements prior to feeding them to the pet is typically done.

We've had no luck finding any of these frisky fellas so far, even though we've put up wanted posters and everything! But don't worry, we're working on it!
