    Default Juvenile Leopard Gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi there!
    I have a juvinelle leopard which I got back in August, I was told he was about 3-4 weeks (but they wasnít entirely sure) so he should be around 3/4 months now. Anyway I was reading around and Iíve read that Leoís of this age should be eating absolutely loads because theyíre growing, however mine maybe eats 3/4 mealworms a day if Iím lucky, some days he will go without eating but never more then 4 days in a row. He wonít even touch Crickets no matter how much I try. He does absolutely demonlish wax worms but I know they are a treat, like us having chocolate so I donít want to give him anymore then once a week.
    I do have a bowl in his enclosure all the time with mealworms, but I donít think he eats from it, he seems to be quite lazy and will only eat when I place them to the entrance of his hide.

    Anyway my question is, is him only eating such a little amount healthy? I am worried that he might become stunted because heís a growing Leo but is only eating such a small amount compared to all the information online! Do you have any tips on how to get him eating more?

    He looks pretty reasonably proportioned with a nice fat tail. They do vary tremendously in how much they eat. Go easy on the waxworms, keep offering, try dubias or super worms if you want and don't worry.
