...in my regalis's terrarium.
A few weeks ago I threw a cricket into its enclosure, and got confused when it started burrowing. I eventually noticed its oviposition tube and realized it was laying eggs. I didn't really want to rehouse regalis, but I sealed ventilation holes with tape as a precaution (good thing, too, because they can climb the plastic walls just fine!).
After about a week, I figured maybe the temperature or humidity wasn't right for the eggs and they had died, so I threw in a couple isopods hoping they'd eat the remains. Earlier today I saw the regalis (~3 inches) spazzing a little bit as if it was eating something, but thought it was just cleaning itself. Later I threw in a cricket to finally feed it after its molt this past weekend and noticed the little pinheads all over the enclosure.
So my question is, is it safe [for my T] to leave a 3" regalis, a medium 3/4" cricket, and about 50-100 pinhead crickets in the same enclosure? The enclosure is fairly large—about 5x5x7 inches.
I just noticed that the regalis is in fact eating the pinheads, so I'm guessing they won't be mistaking it for food before it's full. Would the medium cricket possibly eat the pinheads as well? Is there any chance of the crickets puncturing its exoskeleton? As I mentioned, it molted 4-5 days ago, so I'm hopeful that its exoskeleton has had a chance to harden by now.
