I recently got a new sling, and bought some small sized crickets to feed it today. With my much larger scorpion I had been shuffling the feeding container over the enclosure and a cricket would eventually fall in, but with the small container the sling is in I have to coax one in. The sling was curious at first and tried to attack it but when it jumped it got startled and kept running away, so I had to remove the cricket. When I tried to put the cricket back in the enclosure it jumped on my arm and I freaked out. I feel like such a <edit> because I cannot hold crickets properly. Even with tongs, I get shivery and can't keep a firm grip. I don't mind watching them or caring for them, it's just when they jump and flit around that it kills me. Any advice?
