weird problem is right....maybe mist generously or shower him a bit if he drinks some water it may dislodge and get swallowed.

If you can't get it out by spraying a lot, then you may have to hold his mouth and take it out. Poor little guy.:(

ya ive kinda been tryin that but being that he has no tounge i have to be very carefull how much water goes into his mouth as his air ducts are exposed

To add on to that.. Maybe try using tweezers to get it out, seems like it would be easier than your fat fingers. And i mean that compared to the size of his lil mouth :D

ya prob not tweezers im going to sorta pop it off with a chop stick small and not too pointy or the tip of a eye dropper i use to let him drink ( maybe trick him into opening his mouth that way )

I did it!!! yaaaa i used a toothpic that i dulled down on a rock. very carfully opened his mouth and held him with one hand and very carefully used the toothpick and popped it off the roof of his mouth he was soo greatfull

i would advise that last as a last alternative IMHO has he eaten since? try a smaller cricket and see if the dryness of that will catch on to the cricket on the roof of his mouth and drag it out when he swallows. i wouldnt worry about choking either, the cricket thats been in there is already wet.
