unfortunatly this is what happens when people domesticate and hand feed geckos.
dont feed her with tweezers, tongues or anything. stop feeding for 5 days and try again with a few locusts.

are you proud of that!?
i really hope not.
I think a lot of people are missing out. a healthy, not hand fed leopard gecko will activly hunt their prey, this is one of the most interesting things to watch and why i like geckos...

Have you tried her with other livefood such as roaches? I gave my beardie some Dubia roaches last week for the first time and I’ve never seen him move so fast. He’s fast when he hunts anyway but roaches seem to make him jump to a much higher gear. :2thumb:
Plus roaches will be so much better for her than worms.
