I am dedicating this post to my critters live food.
European night crawlers- less bitter than redworms and heartier and easier to keep than Canadian nightcrawlers.
White worms- great for small newts and larvae. They arenot wone of my favorites because they are more work.
Daphnia- fresh water crustaceans. I tend to purchase and then can feed for a few weeks before I run out.
Brine shrimp- salt water crustaceans. These are good for the very smallest larva.
Isopods (aquatic)- very small freshwater crustaceans. These are the little things that you don't see until you turn out your lights and shine a light.
Isopods (terrestrial) & Springtails
Superworms- are exactly what they sound like. Superworms are the super sized versions of mealworms.
Meal worms- I grow these at home- the critters eat the worm. The worms pupate and become beetles that lay eggs that grow more worms.
Butter worms- low in fat and high in protien.
Pheonix worms- good in protien. Not especially lively- I wish they moved more to draw attention.
Hornworms- an eye catching treat. They are full of protien and soft and wonderful.
Bean beatles - Good protien and a next step up from fruit flies. The beans lay their eggs in the beans and then the larva chew there way through the bean.
Dubia roaches- better protien than crickets and can produce them at home without noise or smell.
Crickets- easy to obtain and move in a stimulating way.
