I am no expert here but since no one else replied I’ll put in my 2 cents. They say that a cricket carries little nutritional value unless he has been fed with in 2 days. Also many lizards benifit very greatly from calcium in their diet. at the pet store (if they are reputable) they feed constantly and enhance the calcium in the cricket.. Since fish don’t care about that and bait stores probalbly have no knowledge about raising herps I think you can draw you own conclusions. Unless I knew that the cricket was fed and fortified I would never use them as food for my pets.

find out whom their supplier is & if reputable then yes as a cricket is a cricket
& what YOU gutload into it before feeding to your reptile determines wheter it is
nutrional or not......Wal Mart may have the same supplier as the Petco or Pet Smart across the street........
