I've had these dragons for a couple months now (most of you have probably seen the pictures) and about a month ago they both started refusing to eat crickets. Actually, they haven't seemed to care much for crickets since day one, but now it really seems like every single cricket I put in there just ends up committing suicide in the waterbowl.

They chow down on mealworms and waxworms like there's no tomorrow, and absolutely love pinkies, but turn their noses up at greens and crickets. I tried not offering bugs and baby mice for a few days and then offering crickets, but still nothing, except maybe a glare at such a travesty.

So for now I've captitulated, and they're getting their usual diet. I feel kind of like a nutritionist trying to convince people to stop eating big macs.

Any advice on how to convince them crickets are tasty would be appreciated, or if it's not so bad that they're eating pinkies and worm things that'd be nice to know too. Thanks in advance!
