ok so I'm soon going to get 2 new baby bearded dragons and a baby frilled dragon. I already own a nearly 3 feet b/w x red tegu and 3 adult leopard geckos.Ive been buying bait store crickets for my geckos. I tried breeding the crickets only got a few babies with all the new pets soon to be arriving in early august I need a cheap reliable food surply.When looking for dragons I noticed a lot of the breeders feeding there animals lobster and derbies roaches I was thinking of punching some lobster ones to breed. I heard they are easy to breed and have very good nutritional value I've been into reptiles for awhile and I've heard them mentioned a lot just never got any yet. My only concern it that can all my reptiles eat theses roaches sizes depending on animal of course)? My tegu would not be eating them.Ive also been thinking about getting silk and horned tomato worms to start beeding.Im already breeding mice for my tegu.

I live in central fl so are they legally allowed were I live I know durbies aren't but what about the lobster ones?

please reply with any comments tips ect
thx

Lobster roaches are also illegal in Florida.

Man that's gotta suck I breed dubias at home (in nevada) look on the bright side though you have almost no issues with humidity lol (fogger in a 40 gallon breeder gives about 60% humidity)

I'm in Vegas and enjoy meeting local people that are into reptiles. Also I need some more Dubias to add to my colony.
