    Are you interested in breeding your own mealworms? It's pretty easy.

    I am, actually! I need to get the facilities to handle it, but it's definitely in the game plan. The last batch I picked up had an interesting variety of worm colorings and it got me thinking that it can't be terribly difficult to keep them. Plus, there's a market here to give people quality worms at a cheap price.

    Update: bug officially "accepted" me tonight! Crawled across my hand as seen in the picture, and then allowed me to lift him onto his favorite rock a few minutes later. Meanwhile, I think he believes my daughter is a food object (she's three) as every time she's near the area, his demeanor is very much the same as right before he devours a mealworm.

    How often do leopards shed? Bug has nearly doubled in size since we picked him up, and his forever home is still another week or two out from completion. Should we plan on getting a moist hide in his current home now just in case?

    All I can say is that juvies shed more frequently than adults. I'm positive Bug's shed several times while you weren't looking, so his humidity must be good.
    Warm moist hides are recommended 24/7. A leo uses the warm moist hide for hydration as well as for shedding.

    Here's a hide you can make out of any plastic container. Fill the lower section with damp sphagnum moss or damp coco fiber. Keep the humid hide right on top of the heat mat just like the warm dry hide.
