hey guys i have a question i want to buy crickets online but i dont know what week should i buy them i have a 4m panther @ the store i usually buy medium crickets they about half an inch thnx in advance
Many of the online sights for purchasing crickets have a diagram of the actual sizes, I dont know about panthers but he is still young at 4 months. Check the sites out first, you can go with the size between the eyes of your chameleon or a small step up. If you buy a lot remember they will get bigger in a week so maybe buy a size smaller and feed more until the others grow to size, especially if you are going to buy 250/500+...just a thought that crossed my mind when I was going to buy some becuz more is cheaper but it may be too many. If you are not going to buy a lot go to a bait store (see if they have them separated in size), shipping makes everything expensive.
yea but im going to order silkworms from mulberry but i need to complete the amount required so it could be shipped so i was going to add 100 crickets but they go by weeks... and 100 crickets will last me like a week and a half this guy is a beast
So, it seems at 4 weeks crickets are at 1/2" so maybe purchasing 3 week old crickets at 3/8" might be a good idea depending on how many you're buying. That way they wouldn't grow too big for your lil guy...This is just my opinion
Since it's cheaper to buy lots online, you might even want to go with 1 or 2 weeks crickets. You'll need to feed more at the beginning when the crickets are tiny, but really, 1000 crickets cost maybe $5 more than 500 crickets, so what do you care if you're feeding more in the beginning.
