    Hi everyone i have had my leo for two weeks now and tbh I am having more problems with the mealworms than i am having with the leslie which is none. First of all they were really smelly I mean so bad I had to open them outside and wait for the smell to die down but even then it was really bad...

    I've just started bulk buying mealworms for my leo's, and was just wondering if they were ok for Tigers aswell? I can't find anywhere that says anything against them, but nowhere that says to use them. Any advice would be nice :2thumb:

    Are these mealworms adults and not far from becoming beetles? One of them is a giant one, you will be able to tell which one Cheers

    Hi all I want to extend the variety of insects I can feed, especially now I'm going to be getting a Leo, at the moment I have Crickets - happily living in a large faunarium, pesky little things, they did have a cricket keeper but escaped in their masses lol Dubai roaches - currently living in...

    I've always had a problem with dusting mealies with Nutrobal for the simple reason it just falls straight off! Calcium powder is a lot finer and sticks to them no problem but I must be wasting a lot of the nutrobal cos within seconds of dusting it's at the bottom of the dish. Anyone got any ideas?

    Hi If anybody lives near Bedale or Catterick North Yorkshire I have some Mealies going for free or a small donation to go towards baby food as our new addition to the family doesn't stop eating. I started a worm farm and it produces a ridiculous amount of worms. They are at a good size now and...

    Exo Terra Faunariums - Surrey Pet Supplies would a heat mat melt this ? also do you think you could make lizard lolly pops by freezing mealies in ice cubes or would it change the humidity to much ? just a random thought

    So I bought 500g of mealies about a month or so ago, and a few weeks ago they started turning to aliens, now I'm getting more and more beetles every day! I think I've got waaaay to many and I think once the beetles lay eggs there are going to be far too many! What can I do with them to get rid...

    I've got a Uro who has a couple (about 10) mealies over the typical weekend. He loves eating them and it's helping to tame him down so i figure a few must be good for him. I have a faunarium with the majority of the mealies on a substrate of porridge oats and bran, with veg added regularly and...

    Use them as a staple for leos? Reason i ask is, obviously you can feed them in the worm state as a staple, and my leo LOVES the beetles, so was just wandering if i could feed these along with Locusts and Silkworms as a staple diet? Cheers

    He LOVES mealworms. I gave him 2 crickets and offered him more he would deny them. I put down 10 mealworms and there gone in 20 seconds. Is this ok if I feed him meal worms for now on? Right now I have them in a kricket keeper with sand and they just dig, can i throw a few carrots in LOL and...

    Hi again, When I first got my leo I was convinced that she just didnt like mealworms as they remained untouched. However, now shes eating normally and has been for a few months, shes at the point where she will come out as soon as the food goes in and eat ALL of it within seconds. Im...

    I thought I was seeing things when the sand we use for our Leo started moving..but no, I wasn' was definitely moving! :gasp: We have kept our Leo on calci-sand her entire life (5 yrs approx) and shes never had any compactions/passing sand/etc, so changing it was never an urgency. At the...

    I have this morning put a couple of livefood keepers together as I have only been keeping them in the boxes they come in since I started with my first Leo 4 weeks ago... I found the Crix and Mealies aint all that good kept in their original boxes and thought I'd give this a go with a couple of...
