    Default Red Eyed Tree Frog Feeding Crickets On String

    Well I just tried something today. I was thinking to save money and I found a way to save on crickets.

    I froze a couple crickets. And then once they froze, I took them back out, and thawed them. I tied the cricket on a string from the tip of the leg; the foot. And then I dangled it in the cage. It works! They frogs are fooled into thinking it's alive. They both ate a thawed cricket.

    So from now on, I'm going to freeze my crickets, so they last longer, and don't die on me. It basically preserves the cricket as if it never aged once you stick it in the freezer.

    I just figured I'd share that idea, in case any of you would like to give it a shot.

    I had recently been thinking about freezing worms. I figured since plenty of people feed frozen mice it'd be fine. Nice to hear crickets work well frozen!

    Hmm, that does sound like a good idea now that I think about it. Again, thanks for the suggestion!

    Although, I had a thought: you don't want to jab your frog with a sharp wire like a guitar string. Maybe thick fishing line or ordinary string would be the thing to use.
