Should I buy freeze dried crickets or live baby crickets? I have 3 Ensatina Salamanders, and I hear that they are triggered to bite something from movement, but I don't know for sure. Which is easier and most likely eaten quicker by my sals?

If you do a quick search, you will find that freeze-dried foods have practically no nutritional value.

With crickets, you should gutload, and feed a varied diet, and not put so many crickets in that they nibble on your salamanders.

I would use worms as a staple and vary the salamanders diet with crickets and other arthropods.

I keep all of my Ensatina on live crickets exclusively. I dust them with Reptivite about every third week. I use to supplement with wax worms, but I found too many not eaten because they would dig in.
