HI I have haf my six week old leopard gecko for a week, first of all I fed him 4-6 small hoppers avday by just placing 2 at a time in his vivarium. As he spends all day andvevening hiding in his cave, for the last two days I have dipped size 3 crickets in water then calcium and places then at the opening of his cave. They walk around for a few seconds before he eagerly eats them.
I give him around 5-7 crickets and within 5 minutes theyvwre all gone. I use calcium around 4 days a week. I gut feed the crickets on bug grub, crushed cornflakes, dog biscuits, potato, carrots as well as bug gel.
I alternate weekly between crickets, locusts and hoppers. I wascadvised by a breeder of twentybyears not to feed him mealworms as he may find them hard to digest and if he swallowed them wholevthey may bit him as he swallows.
