Hi,
Does anyone have experience feeding Camponotus ants cricket? If so, did they like it?

My Camponotus love their crickets (these are mediterranean crickets of the genus Gryllus).

 

 

Btw, if you feed crickets of the genus Acheta make sure to kill them first. Those things are absolute tanks and even Camponotus will have serious trouble taking them down.

We should respect all forms of consciousness. The body is just a vessel, a mere hull.
