I think that if you combine all the info available, the consensus is that a few bugs in the diet are a good thing so long's they don't diminish the amount of greens & "seed" foods.
Observing captive Uros delight with a few crickets leads me to assume that an insect diet in the wild, to some extent, is perfectly normal.
Only guessing here. We don't feed insects to our Uros. Not that we think it's a bad thing in moderation, just that we favor the train of thought that it's not neccessary in order to raise a healthy Uro.
Cheerios,
Dan.
