Our Godzilla is not a B-rated moviestar monster, no, he’s a superstar in our off-exhibit reptile room. Today was “Herp Feed” day (when we feed the turtles, lizards, salamanders, gecko, and alligators). Yum!! Here’s Godzilla, our bearded dragon, chowing down his crickets (which were lovingly de-legged for him by Keeper Kimberly). I was merely the bearer and server of the bounty.

Why are the legs of the crickets removed?
Good question Laura. The large jumping legs are removed because they hold little nutritional value and they have small yet sharp pokey-parts. Also, if the crickets had their jumping legs they would leave the dish!
