Feeding the crickets to your animal

method to get the crickets out of their colony and into your pet's enclosure
is to cut the bottom 3/4 off of a 2 liter soda bottle. Place some toilet
tissue rolls in the cricket colony and let the crickets climb in and on
them. Shake the crickets into the 2 liter bottle and dust if you prefer,
then empty them into your pets enclosure.
This is a Veiled Chameleon "bowl feeding". This is one method of
feeding. Bowl feeding allows closer monitoring of food intake.
method is to "free roam" the crickets and allow the animal to "hunt". Free
roaming provides exercise and entertainment for the animal.
Each method has its pros and cons.
