I grew up watching The Crocodile Hunter, and to this day I still search the woods for local reptiles, I love them. Unfortunately my family doesn't so I have yet to actually own a reptile, but I volunteer at a zoo in my city and I take care of reptiles like baby rosey boas, bearded dragons, and 6 ft. long pythons. It's great.

I love reptiles however my mom does not like the idea of feeding an animal live food. For now I have two Fire belly newts and even those my mom isn't happy about because I have to feed them frozen bloodworms.

Jams- I feed mine frozen crickets. It is a painless death for the crickets, they go into hibernation sort of and then die.

Thank you for the advice! When I do get a reptile of some sort I will probably feed he or she with this method.

You have to train them (well, leopard geckos at least) on to frozen foods because instinctually they only go for live. It's not hard at all and it saves you from the smell and noise of live crickets.
