One of my girls who originally was doing well on mealworms has decided supers are tastier and demands them every night. I only give 1-2 a day and she her recent poo was normal, although pretty big. Just wanted opinions on this, since I don’t want to end up making her ill.
Well although I dont keep leopard geckos anymore as I have now moved to ball pythons I did keep a little food bowl that had meal worms or supers in them. Generally from what I saw leopard geckos will eat until they get sick so I only had a few in there food bowl at a time. It also depends on their age how much you feed them and since supers are much bigger than mealworms they wont need as many as if they were to eat mealworms. A was that you can gauge if your gecko has healthy body fat is to look at the tail.
Too many is when the leo gets sick from eating too many. Normally an adult leo can eat 3-5 supers ever other day. One thing is supers have quite a bit more fat then mealworms so watch for a gecko getting fat. We feed breeding adult females supers during the breeding season otherwise all of our Leo’s get a combo of meals, crickets, and roaches.
I read 1 insect per 1 inch of body length (adult) I feed mine 1 or 2 per feeding.
