Man Accidentally Unleashes 250 Live Crickets In His House

One man quickly realized that having a lizard as a pet is certainly not as easy as having a dog.

Adopting a pet can be a lot of work. All pets have specific needs and there are certain things you need to do to keep them healthy, happy, and alive.

So when Christopher Ingraham and his family adopted a young bearded dragon lizard, he ended up having a really good story to tell the internet. All he wanted was to be a good owner and feed his pet well, but he quickly realized that having a lizard as a new pal is certainly not as easy as, say, having a dog.

You see, Christopher’s new pet lizard eats crickets, so he decided to order the live insects in bulk to prepare for the feeding. The crickets were shipped via FedEx, and when they arrived, he opened them right away to check them out.

Unfortunately for Christopher, the live crickets were not shipped in a container and he accidentally released 250 of them in his house!

“This was a conundrum. There was no immediate way for me to transfer 250 clearly active and ravenously hungry crickets from the box to the shallow plastic container we store them in at home. The only solution would be to grab a spare fish tank we had out in the shed, which would take a bit of time, requiring a trip outside in the deep snow and chilling cold. Back at my desk, after all, I had a nearly finished story that was due to my editor. Rather than upend my workday for the sake of $11.50 worth of Internet crickets, I decided to retape the box and store it in a secure location until I had time to deal with it”

“Besides my wife, Briana, and I, our house is home to 5-year-old twins, a 1-year-old, three large cats, one beagle-basset mix and one lizard. There was only one place where I thought I could put the cricket box without it getting overturned or split open by a child or an animal: the bathroom adjacent to our kitchen. I put the crickets in the cabinet above the toilet and went back to work. For about 20 minutes, everything was quiet”

“Our dragon, whom we named Holly, eats a lot, and the thing she loves to eat most is crickets (typically about 10 a day, in addition to other things like mealworms and vegetables). Briana later told me that she first realized something was terribly wrong when one of the cats suddenly leaped on to a pumpkin pie that had been warming on the countertop. It was going after an unusually large cricket that was munching the filling. I’m happy to report that as of Saturday afternoon, I am alive. The lizard is well-fed. The cats are sleeping deeply. The Ingraham household is finally still. But something’s chirping in the bathroom.”
