    Feeding mealworms to leopard geckos:
    When I was breeding geckos, I fed mealworms only to the hatchlings. In order to supplement them properly I sprinkled the supplement on the mealworms, possibly at every feeding since they had higher calcium needs and it could take them awhile to get to the mealworms. You could also put mealworms in a bag or a small jar, add supplement and shake.
    The hatchlings I kept into adulthood pretty much got bored with mealworms because they don't move so much and "graduated" to crickets and super worms.

    I have fed super worms to leopard geckos as small as 10 grams (this one just wan't "getting" the mealworms but she figured out the super worms pretty quickly). I wouldn't do it for geckos smaller than that and if you can get smaller super worms it's probably best.

    Okay cool, all the superworms Iíve seen in my local pet stores have been absolutely HUGE. But, so far heís loving the mealworms, so Iím going to stick with those for now.
