    Hello,
    Is there a way of getting small tadpoles or even water beetles at this time of year?
    Thank-you.

    Where do you live? You could be in any country in the World?

    Hello Colin,
    I live in Northern Ireland. I was looking for them to feed them to a few lizards. I sometimes keep water beetles in a pond for my interest. I am not surprised like I can find semi-tropical inch-long tadpoles at the present when I make for growth in their habits. Only knowing suitability probably to purchase.
    Thank-you,
    Stephen.

    Hi Stephen

    not all, but many beetles are not appreciated by lizards in my experience because beetles can often give off nasty chemicals when scared – what are you feeding them too? Why not get some Blatta lateralis off ebay and breed your own? I have a colony and they are very easy to breed.

    Hello Colin,
    I am providing them living food to skinks mostly. It isn’t easy to continue to make them happy without other nutrient-keepers.
    Thank-you,
    Stephen.
