I started gathering grasshoppers to feed my Beardie last year. I could kick myself for not having thought of it before. Dragons love them. They are big, juicy, crunchy and nutritious.
---If you can find a field close to you with grass around a foot high you have found a grasshopper playground in summer. I don't know anything about breeding them, but I remember reading a post by someone who did and they said it was pretty easy.
---Use the "search this forum" option on the Feeder Forum main page and type "grasshoppers". There are a lot of posts about them. However, do not feed the brightly colored ones called lubbers because they are toxic. Read the post about them.
