    That's just people saying asking if they bite and some people say yes and some say no. Maybe you had a super big hornworm? You can't feed them those big ones. We feed them before they get too big.

    Their mandible is not a problem in the appropriate size for leopard geckos. NEVER feed a hornworm longer than their torso or wider than the space between their eyes. You may get away with it for a while and then one day end up with an impacted gecko.

    Ok, thanks, that's good to know. The ones I feed are around an inch in length and not very fat at all, but my leo loves them. He bit down on one once though and it swung around and attached itself to his head, and he was not happy about that! So it's good to know that said worm couldn't have sought revenge once consumed.

    They have to make an attempt to run for their lives.

    I was wondering about the super worms and this biting. They seem so vicious! But I watched this youtube video and this guy has his hands all in a HUGE tub of them to prove they don't bite at all. So I ignored my fears and decided to breed them as well. Gosh, I may just feed off the pupae now!

    Moral of the story, if it has a mouth it can bite. How you decide to go from there is up to you.

    Elizabeth, P.S. What size cricket do I get? My gecko is only a few months old.

    They are available in 1", 2/3", 1/2", 3/8", 1/4", 1/8" and pinhead??
