Welcome to the site!


The size pf the cage is likely the main reason he wants out.

He needs a 2x2x4' screened enclosure ideally .

Also, those zoophobas in the dirt, can cause him to inadvertently eat the substrate, which can cause him health issues, and even death.

The substrate is unnecessary, and can be taken completely out.

THat video leedragon posted is excellent, and you would do good to study it.

Also, you have

there is too much insects in there at the same time he gets confuse, try to put 1-3 at the same time and don´t feed the same food all the time, try other insects

They need lots of variety or they won't eat. Horn worms sil worms, meal worms super worms wax worms dubia roaches calci worms praying mantis snails blue bottle flies black soldier flys. Are you gut loaded your crickets as well?
