In Reply to: Ants. posted by ZackD. on May 01, 2003 at 23:29:11:

:Well around this time in boise the ants are EVERYWHERE! Theres these little black ants that just seem to swarm on everything, for the most part I can keep my lizard away from the ants but on occasion he has managed to lick up one or two.

:Think these will hurt him?

:If not think I can substitute the for crickets every once in a while?

i'm hoping that when your dragon injests these ants it's out of it's cage. if not vaseline smeared around the base of the tank will keep them from entering.

as supplamenting ants for crickets
i advise not to do so. becuase who knows what they might of come in contact with, and as for nutritional value. a cricket is much more healthy considering. u know what they have injested, they contain much less chiltin(sp) therefore having more nutritional value than exoskeleton( as with mealworms)
