When they got to adults he fed them the same way, alternate food but every 2 days so one day crickets/locusts then 2 days later mealworms.
When they were adults he occassionally gave them a pinkie mouse as a treat.
I am planning on following his feeding technique, he brought them 14 years ago and they are still here.
Hope this helps
Thanks i do intent to give them a varied diet, i was just confused as the meal worms in my leopards bowl have been there since i bought them, there still alive and have been dusted with calcium, i'm just not sure if i should wait until they have been eaten or change them and give my reptiles fresh ones.
