I found it interesting that the capacity of the crickets gastrointestinal tract was a limiting factor....I've wondered about this before.
Crouching and belly hugging....
"Although the crickets were fed a commercial cricket food, the value of this gut-load product was limited by the capacity of the crickets' gastrointestinal tract. The product was unable to make up the deficits provided with infrequent use of a poorly formulated dust. The gut-load likely prevented an earlier onset of advanced metabolic bone disease but could not meet the needs of rapidly growing heavily fed young Veiled Chameleons".
