Eating Oothecae


Established Member
I have a ton of Dubias heavy with oothecae right now. My 13 month old Panther, Darkstar, has just recently taken to eating Dubia. I've fed him a few pregnant females (gutloaded on apples and Dinofuel) and he seems to enjoy them. Colony can withstand a few being fed off here and there. Do any forum members know if oothecae/pregnant Dubia have any additional nutritional value vs a non pregnant Dubia? Those oothecae look pretty substantial, so I would assume the nutritional profile may change.

Yes, this is a post about eating babies. Sorry for the savagery.

I've never even thought to feed those off. I've only ever fed off some of my adult males to my beardie when I've needed to thin down a bit. I'd be interested to know as well.
