    Default How much to feed 14 month old leo? + leaving mealworms in tank?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Iím feeding my 14 month old male 9 medium-large crickets and if I feed mealworms then he gets 25. Is this enough or should he be eating more?
    Also, what do you think about leaving mealworms in a bowl all the time for him to snack on and just always feed crickets?
    How much are your adults leopard geckos eating?

    Snacking on mealworms is great. Usually I feed my geckos as much as they want to eat. Nine crickets is a good amount for even an adult.

    So, leaving in mealworms is good and just always feed crickets?

    That sounds fine to me. You can also feed hornworms, super worms, silk worms or roaches if you can get some.
