    Default Is it time for every other day feedings?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So my leo Marceline is somewhere in the range of 4-6 months old, I believe she is 5 months but I am not positive. She is about 41 grams. She hasn't been wanting to eat her dubia roaches as much lately (the past week) but she is still very into mealworms and superworms. I don't want her to exclusively eat those for a few reasons...

    Should I start offering food every other day now so that she will be more hungry and eat her roaches? Or is it still too early?

    Is it possible for leos to become addicted to superworms like they do with waxworms?

    Try feeding Marceline every other day. Give her all she'll eat in about 1 hour. Feeder variety is best! Remember that leos continue to grow until they are about 18 months old.

    Mealworms and superworms are better than waxworms. Waxworms are much higher in fat.
