    Default Been a while...interesting update


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My two Leo's have turned 8 this year in September. One has always been an exceptional eater (but won't touch Mealworms), and the other one is addicted to Mealworms.

    Low and behold, after years and years of trying to get my mealworm addict onto Crickets, I have successfully converted her to Dubia's. She hasn't eaten a Mealworm in over 2 months now, and will happily gobble up Dubia's AND Hornworms (which she also used to refuse).

    I'm not sure how this happened, but it's been great to buy them the same feeders...and it feels awesome to finally get away from the fatty mealworms. I personally never thought I'd see the day, but sure enough, we got there!

    Mealworms aren’t as bad feeders as many in the hobby would lead one to believe:

    I know there are breeders who feed MW's exclusively to their geckos, and they seem to turn out just fine...I'm just happy that I can buy 1 feeder for both geckos now considering one wouldn't touch MWs, and the other wouldn't eat anything else.
