    Default What’s your geckos favorite food?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So with large superworms finally available in my area, my big female is finally able to eat her favorite food of all time- freshly molted superworms. Every time I find one, I feed it to her because she absolutely adores these things. I once did an experiment where I put a freshly molted superworm and a waxworm next to each other in front of her, and despite the fact that both were moving around a lot, she went straight for the superworm.

    That got me wondering what the favorite food of other geckos are! I’d appreciate if waxworms aren’t given as an answer cause they obviously are the favorite food of a lot of geckos, but I was wondering what your guys’ leopard gecko’s favorite food is.

    Mine are as followed.

    Firefly (big tangerine female): Freshly molted superworms

    Illusion (wild type male): Male crickets

    Pearl (four month old RAPTOR): Crickets with holes in them so the guts are leaking out

    Angel (sub adult wild type male): Freshly formed, squishy superworm pupa

    Clementine (little tangerine who just showed back up): Large crickets

    Luna (tangerine female): Cricket bodies. Not heads- she actually decapitates the crickets

    I don't really know so far because I haven't gotten either superworms or waxworms, but out of crickets and mealworms crickets is his favorite.

    Occasionally I feed my leo hornworms. She gobbles them up in no time flat!

    Please compare protein versus fat in various insects and worms on this chart.

    Sadly, my Leo seems to prefer Mealworms. Trust me, it is not from lack of effort on my part! He will very occasionally eat crickets (if I could only convey to him the amount of work I put into maintaining those dang things....argh!) He seems to like Silkworms but after buying another few Hornworms and having him turn up his nose at them day after day until they died or ate each other, I won't be buying those for a while. I haven't tried Superworms but may do so at some point. I just wish I could get him to eat crickets more!!!
