Locusts are an ideal livefood for slower moving reptiles. Live locusts are a good alternative to crickets and because they are slower-moving, are good live food for reptiles with movement problems and disabilities.
Their higher protein level is also beneficial for egg-laying lizards. Live Food Locust Bulk Bags are now available from Swell Reptiles at discounted prices.
As with all live foods, it is vital they are kept healthy - and your locusts will need feeding just like your reptile. Our experts recommend feeding your locusts a high quality food such as ProRep Bug Grub.
It is also important to dust your locusts with a calcium, vitamin and mineral supplement such as Vetark Nutrobal. Our experts say, the healthier your locusts - the healthier your lizard.
