    Exclamation Feeding Mealworms to Leopard Geckos...


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Please do yourself (and your pet) a favor and read this if you're considering mealworms as a primary source of food for your leopard gecko. It amazes me that so many people are worried about impaction from sand, when it happens just as often (if not more so) from over feeding of mealworms. Not to mention that mealworms are nutritionally poor being low in protein, low in calcium, and high in fat.

    Here's the link to the article: The Pro's and Con's of Mealworms

    Thanks to Dr. Danny Brown for writing this article and allowing us to link to it.
