    Albino Cricket???

    I bought some crickets for my turtles today (again) and noticed a pure white cricket. It was completely pure, snow white except for its eyes and antaneas. Is this rare? Can it be sold for money? (LOL)

    P.S. I'll post some pictures later!

    If you don't know any better and you look in a bunch of dark crickets and see a white one its an easy assumption to make.

    I think we have all done that the first time we saw an all white one.

    Re: Albino Cricket???

    Yup. I've always wondered if the critters like the soft, white, freshly molted crickets or the crunchy winged ones better. Taste test anyone?
