Locusts

 
5th hopper

Locusts (Schistocerca gregaria) have surged in popularity over the past 5 years, and are a popular choice for Bearded Dragon keepers.

Locusts are sold as smalls (8-12mm), thirds (22-24mm), fourths (28-32mm), fifths (36-42mm) and adults (50-60mm).

They are both quiet, and non invasive, which has contributed to their popularity as a choice of feed. They now account for over 50% of the livefood production space at Monkfield, and our colony consumes over 9 tonnes of greens every week. They appear to be preferred by the voracious Bearded Dragon, which has fuelled their growth as a commercial species. As with any insect, proper supplementation should be given prior to feeding to your reptile.
