    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!

    Don't worry, I myself have wondered about this....and thanks to you asking, I now know that it is not albino, but just molting. Thanks for asking ;)

    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.

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

    My Lady tried to get me to eat a chocolate covered cricket at a reptile show once.
    The deal was if you ate the cricket they'd give you a tee shirt that advertised their company, which sold feeder crickets!

    I told her if SHE wanted the shirt why didn't SHE eat the cricket.:confused:

    She said it wasn't THAT cool a shirt!:rolleyes:
