Crickets are one of the most common insects to feed bearded dragons as well as dubia roaches. They are considered healthy for them to eat and have soft shells. However, they do smell bad, and are hard to catch. They are normally purchased from stores or online to be give to bearded dragons.
However, can bearded dragons eat wild crickets that are caught outside?
Unfortunately, they cant at all. It is not good for them to eat any wild insect, plant or creature as you just dont know what they have caught or what has attached itself to it. It is far better to purchase crickets from a store so you can be sure that they are 100% safe for your dragon to eat.
