If your thinking about feeding it to your T, don't! It could have been exposed to pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Stick to captive bred bugs that are meant for pet animals to eat.

That is almost every insect on earth lol
actually almost every small critter on earth ... even some larger ones like cows....
but i am going to assume you meant those bread in captivity to be used as feeders lol


to the OP no dont feed WC food to your bugs unless you dont care if they die. and if you dont care then just send them to someone who does ...But i am sure you do since you asked if it was ok

eh, i threw the bug out. it looked kinda scary...

as for drachenjager, i actually do care if my spiders die or not. in fact, i don't want them to. big suprise? if i was this worried that i posted a thread on here to see if a bug would be okay or not, wouldn't you think that i would care. sorry to be frank, but i'm kinda tired this morning.
