was wondering what anybody that keeps these feeds them...i feed my white and red spots both crickets, but i have adult and juvi white spots, and only juvie red spots..i will sometimes feed my adult white spots male latteralis, but mostly crickets for everyone...anyways the red spots dont have the brutal aggression towards food like the white spots, and whenever i try and get my reds to eat the are always afraid...i have gotten a couple to eat, but the rest of them just seem to run from the crickets..i thought about pre killing the crickets...they are all big enough to take down full sized crickets, its just they are too afraid to...but the whites of course nail every cricket i throw in as soon as it gets near them....i know that the reds are less aggressive, but i didnt think it was to the point they are afraid of crickets..thanks for any info
