Silent crickets

Silent cricket

Silent Crickets (Gryllus assimilis) are the larger species of brown cricket, and whilst not completely silent, they are the quietest species of cricket commercially available.

Silent crickets are sold as hatchlings (3mm), firsts (5mm), seconds (6-8mm), thirds (8-10mm), fourths (12-18mm), standards (18-25mm) and large (25-30mm).

There is no significant difference in the nutritional composition of any of the cricket species. The sizing and behaviour of the silent cricket matches that of the black, and hence it is purely down to customer preference as to which species to feed. As with any insect, proper supplementation should be given prior to feeding to your reptile.
