Baby Crickets Hatch at TomKat Ranch

When I opened the cricket habitat today, I was surprised to see some little critters scurrying about. At first, they looked like an army of ants, but a closer look revealed they are baby crickets! Since we’ve added some heat mats to the side and bottom of the habitat, they have not had the large temperature swings like the days before. Happy crickets make baby crickets! As you can see, the babies are very small and incredibly hard to film. Seems like when I get one in focus, they realize it and scram. Limited footage aside, my friends at Bitwater Farms are going to be so proud! One step closer to fish food.
