You use crawfish as a staple (not as an occasional treat)? That's cool! I didn't know that they liked crawfisht hat much!shiftylarry said:Crawfish are bottom feeders, so whatever toxins they've accumulated in the wild will get passed on to your animal. If you do a google search, you'll find a lot of crawfish dealers that will sell you bulk live or frozen crawfish for a very affordable price. Especially after all the hardships of Katrina, it would be nice to support these local businesses. Crawfish are a staple for some of my lizards. They are much cheaper than mice.
lol, that got me laughing! XDdorton said:I'd be curious to try some of the frozens.
As far as toxins, I used to catch the one out of the local creeks, and rivers here and eat them.

Have you ever tried them with tegus? and if so, did the tegu know to make sure it was totally dead before it swallowed it...I mean, couldn't it injure the tegu once inside?shiftylarry said:Yep! It was hilarious feeding them for the first time. He was such an idiot. He kept trying to swallow them face first, and the claws would get caught in the corners of his mouth. Finally he figured out how to get 'em down.
