    If a lizard eats sand it is usually because it is trying to get some nutrients it's missing in it's food, especially calcium. Calcium deficiency leads to weak bones and there jaw would be to soft to eat the crickets like you mentioned.
    I would sprinkle ReptoCal and another vitamin suppliment from time to time on the lizards food when I fed my lizards.

    I'll say a huge ditto to that.

    A note, Walnut shell tears up the inner lining in most reptiles, most notable are the Uromastyx where a great number of owners have killed their uros because of it, in Beardeds and Leos, not nearly as many cases.. but I wouldn't take the chance period.

    Note to self: Supposed hatch date November 20th..
    I better be home that weekend
    Smallest hatch time I can find is 45 days which will put it only a month away.. that would take high temps.. and with Bakersfield as hot as it is.. with the hovabator decreased all the way the temps are still 80-88

    Are the eggs still good? One of female pictus is in an egg-laying spree it seems, 6 eggs in 4 weeks, and 2 more coming [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
    I think the Nephurus female has eggs on the way too, and the Cresteds too... theyre all fresh out of separation, so should be a good fall/winter [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Good luck with the eggiweggs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Yeah, mine always has a dish of powder in there, and his crickets are usually dusted.

    I don't think this is the culprit of my mom's leo's death.. he always had a dish of powder as well and his cricket, though he never ate them, were always dusted. He was simply born a weak hatchling.

    Still, I don't worry about it.. I don't know how else to explain it.. other than.. he is just not gonna eat that sand.
