A blackthroat is a very large monitor. In fact, huge. Weight and mass wise.

Small ones, want to get big as fast as possible. Rodents is by far the best way to do that. They are a superior food for progressive monitors, you know, one that are growing and reproducing. So don't worry about the insects, if you want your monitor to grow.

Rodents are not a good food for static, non growing, do nothing but sit in a cage their whole lives, MONITOR. If you have one of these type monitors, then insects are what you want.

If your blackthroat is telling you what it wants, then I suggest listening. Best of luck
