Buying Grasshoppers

Does any know where you can purchase live grasshoppers online? I usually buy my mealworms and waxworms at SongbirdGarden.com, but they don't carry grasshoppers.

Thanks

I'm not sure that you'll be able to purchase live grasshoppers, as they are considered a severe plant pest. Crickets can be purchased in pet stores or bait shops.

What are you feeding?

Let's guess! What would eat live grasshoppers? Iguanas or other big reptiles?

Iguanas should only eat fruits and veggies and big reptiles eat mice and rats.

So, what eats grasshoppers? The non-chocolate covered kind?

I didn't know that iguanas only eat fruits and veggies! Neat!

My question wasn't what eats grasshoppers, but rather what does Clay want to feed. And iguanas in the wild do eat insects, my point was that in captivity, they should only be given fruits and veggies.
