Baby crickets that is.

I buy crickets every other week for my Leopard Gecko from a local bait shop, so I decided to keep them in an aquarium to maybe prolong their life. Then I noticed the adults laying eggs...  So, after a bit of research, I decided to try my hand at raising crickets.

Well, it's been about a week since the adult crickets have died or been eaten. And now I have babies! A LOT of babies. I am really excited the eggs actually hatched and they're all there crawling around. I also can't believe how many there are. Hopefully I can keep them alive until they grown large enough to become a food source...

Be sure to open the picture full size for all the detail!
