    To be honest with you I wouldn't feed him anything that comes from the outside. You never know if the insects are sick. If you want to you can feed him some feeder roaches. I know you think it might be cool to see him eat something in mid air but it can develop ( sorry for the grammer ) some aggresion.

    When Hernando was an infant and just barely getting used to us, HernandosPapa fed him crickets by tossing them one at a time and Hernando would catch them in mid-air. It was pretty sweet for both of them. Fortunately, they both outgrew this habit before Hernando was big enough to deliver a damaging bite, so he had time to calm down and unlearn the quick-bite response.
