Well the past month i have noticed that my A. Seemani only wants dead crickets, it won't take live ones at all. it flicks at me all the time, it is mature, It just ignores live crickets, but will readily take prekilled ones, which is unfortunate, because i hate killing crickets :(

If you want it to take live prey, I'd suggest only giving live crickets, and no dead ones, if your T is hungry, I think it will take the live crix. If not, you can always dump some in the freezer, then you always have dead crickets and you don't manually have to kill them.

hi

i agree, try and feed it live crickets all the time, he will take them eventually!
