They grow up so fast....
When you first get them, they look like little aliens with spindly legs. Ten months later, they are genuine cricket-murdering monsters! :-)
Cricket update: most of my crickets are now medium to large, in terms of pet store classification. Richard is averaging 15 to 20 crickets a day, as you can tell by his ever-expanding waistline. I have added baby rice cereal, alfalfa, and crushed spirulina tablets to my gutloading repertoire.
This is a real adventure. Everyone should have a Richie Boy, as my sister calls him. :-)
