    I have been rather careless in the past with gutloading with most vegetables that I had available at the time. What are some major no-no's when it comes to gutloading feeder insects?

    So I brought home my new (and first) Leopard Gecko on Saturday, he's 3 years old and had to be rehomed as he wasn't getting the attention he needed. His previous owners gave me all of their supplies, crickets, Nutrobal, Repti-Calcium, and I bought some Bug Grub today. I've switched him to...

    Panther chameleon 14 weeks old Looking for some gut loading tips ... Thinking of buying repashy superload but seems expensive... Currently using cucumber, and other greens covered in non-d3 calcium. What is everyone else feeding their crickets ... Any info gratefully appreciated ... Thanks

    Just trying to find some new stuff to gut load my cricks with and have some can can (no idea what this is I might even be typing it wrong), red butterhead multileaf, red multileaf, and lambs lettuce in the fridge, was wondering if any of these are a no-no? Also have the usual stuff like carrots...

    I've bought some wax worms as like a ***once-every-few-weeks-treat*** for my leopard gecko. I just thought I'd come on and check if they need the same treatment as other insects, i.e. gutloading and dusting like we do with crickets and mealworms etc? Also I'm guessing putting them in the...

    I've asked this question before but all the answers I normally seem to get are "try this supplement" or "try these veggies for a gutload mix". I've decided on what I'm going to use as a gutloader, the problem I have is that if I seperate the amount of mealworms I'll be feeding on the day or the...

    Just curious, what does everyone here use to gut load crickets and mealworms for their leos? Trying to get some new ideas before I go shopping tomorrow so I can pick up some stuff. Im talking about veg btw, that sort of stuff. But do let me know if you use a particular product rather than veg...

    I've just picked up some "porridge oats" for my mealworms bedding, how's that sound? Also I usually gut load them before feeding with veg... Greens, carrots, etc. plus I suppose they'll eat the oats as well. Just thought I'd double check it as my Leo is going to be on mealies only for the...

    Who uses them? I've been looking at the bug burger and the hydro-load but can't make my mind up. Do they have to be used together? or can either of them be used as an all-round gutload? (I'm talking moisture as well as food for crickets) Until now I've been using some zoo-med cricket food and...

I am fairly new to this forum and all this reptile stuff and recently brought myself a young male Leopard Gecko (Loki). I bought him on the...

    Are apples a good gutload? Never tried them before today but I just grated an apple with a cheese grater and it made a really nice moist apple paste, not as mushy as mushed apple. I put it in with the crickets and they went mad for it, running around with chunks of it in their mouths. I'm...

    I have a colony of dubia roaches and gut load them with butternut squash and mango, as these have a fantastic Ca:P ratio, prior to feeding them to my reptiles. I intend to feed these to my T and some scorpions I am getting shortly and I know too much calcium for T's in particular can be...

    I've used Gutload Pro Formula for a while for gutloading feeders but as my last tub was running low I went to try and order some more only to find it's apparently not being made anymore. I feed carrot, apple, leaves, bran and oats anyway but like to gutload prior to feeding. I have a lot of...

    When I buy my mealworms they come in a tube filled with fine brown flakey stuff. Is this the food or do I still need to gutload them? I have been putting lettuce and tomato in the tube just incase will this be good enough for them or should I use some other foods aswell/instead? Thanks.
