Sorry I didn’t respond to this earlier, but yes, they do. In the wild, the insects they eat may consume many other things (with calcium) that domestic ones are not reared on. It’s also best to feed your crickets a good meal before offering them to the lizard. The lizard will benefit from what the cricket has in its stomach.
