    I started feeding my leo supers when she was about a year old, and she loves them. She won't even eat regular mealworms anymore. I would recommend cutting the tip of the head off though so they don't bite.

    Simply put it is not possible. From the outside going in, sure. Even then, only with the most lethargic of geckos would that even be a potential issue, or if one were to place a live gecko in an enclosure with several thousands of mealworms and allow no method of escape.

    Another aspect to consider is how much mealworms are able to consume over a span of time, they do not eat much in an entire month, let alone the seconds they might remain alive inside a gecko.

    Geckos are, at their core, predators. They kill their prey prior to fully ingesting it, a single bite is often enough to do the job, when the insect continues to move they chomp again.

    This automaticly results in the dead off a leo
    So, it's normally advised to decapitade (am I spelling it correct?) them, before you offer them to your leo's. That way, it's safe and sound!!
    By the way; they are quite nutricious, so it is a good food source
    Kind regards,

    Any feeder insect CANNOT eat their way through a Leo's stomahc after they are swallowed, they are killed almost immediately after being swalled.

    I agree with Hilde perfectly safe. Eleye has been eating them for about half a year and is perfectly healthy.
