I have a pet cricket too. I saved it from my science class. I put him in a plastic fish tank with dirt and sand. You can feed him fish food flakes or you can feed him veggies that are cut up really small. Make sure to give it water! Take good care of your new pet cricket!

You can just get a container and add grass, leaves, rocks, and some food. Such as fruit loops, carriots, cucumber, and blackberrys.

Well you first have to find out if it is a baby or an adult, some adult bats are very small and are not to be confused with babies! A baby bat will be pink and without much hair on its back, while an adult will be brown, with short brown hair.

If your bat looks small but is definitely an adult, then it is an insectivorous bat.

It will need to be kept in a dark box, and you will need to feed it every day. You can feed it moths, crickets, and other small insects. If you found the bat and it let you take it, then it probably has a problem, either it can't fly or it is sick. In both cases you cannot feed it live insects as it won't be able to catch and kill it. If it is sick, and you wish to give it a chance to live, either take it to wildlife rehabilitate or a vet.

You will have to kill its food yourself. Feed it every day, but don't be surprised if it won't eat at first. The bat will normally only eat at night, so wait till the morning to see if it has eaten its food. If it has, this is great! Do not disturb the bat when it is sleeping as it will not be very happy, and might get aggressive. Try not to handle it too much, but if you do, wear plastic gloves to protect yourself from bites or diseases.

Another vital thing is dehydration. Put some water on your finger and put it close to its mouth for it to lick it, or place a plastic bottle lid filled with water in its box.

When you see it is flying well and it is not letting you handle it anymore, you might want to consider releasing it in the wild; its natural habitat. But for that it has to be able to catch live food and fly perfectly well.

I hope this helped you and you found it useful!

Um, let it go! You will not be able to keep it alive. But if you have to keep it, make sure you feed it, give it a small amount of water (depending on size) everyday, and go on Google to find what you need to know about crickets.

You probably can't since insects are not particularly long-lived anyway, and if it is injured or ill, there is really nothing you can do.
