    Default Feeding gecko too much?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, everyone!

    Iím new to reptiles and just got my first leopard gecko a couple weeks ago. I got her from a local pet store and unfortunately, they didnít know the gender or age of her. Comparing her to pictures, I suspect sheís less than 6 months, maybe around 3. And I sexed her by watching YouTube videos, lol. I know itís hard to confirm the gender when theyíre young, but she looks like a female right now.

    But anyways, when I got her, I tried to buy crickets from the guy but he wouldnít sell them to me because he said he had fed all the babies that day and they wouldnít need to be fed for a few more days and he was certain the crickets would be dead by the time I fed her. (?) From my research, I read that baby leopard geckos need to be fed every day, so I just left and bought crickets from a different store and gutloaded them and dusted them. She seemed pretty skinny when I got her so I donít think feeding her a couple times a week was cutting it.

    She was eating within a day and ate about 10 small crickets which seemed like a lot to me, but Iíve always read that geckos will usually stop eating when theyíre full. Iíve been feeding her small mealworms the last few days and sheís been eating upwards of around 15 every day. Is that too much? I donít want her to be overweight so should I limit her or is she fine to eat that much?
