Hello!

Wonder if anyone can help or give me any advice..

As you know Obi has recently been poor he is now on the mend but looking very skinny, He hates wax worms wont touch them if i try to force feed them he spits them out! Likes the odd mealworm and since he got bit by the Cric he has been a bit weary of the crickets aswell!!

I was going to try to feed a pinky but im worried about him digusting it.

He will eat blended veg and waxies (which stinks!) but he isnt a great lover of it!

I know he will start to put weigh on slowly but im wondering if you could advise of anything that will help him along the way

thanks in advance

Bex

how old is he? if older than 6-7 months a pinky should be fine,if your that worried ask the shop for the smallest one they can find.meal worms are high in fat aswell so a few of them wont hurt.

Pinkies are fine if he's a little under weight.. If your worried about digestion up the temp by a degree or two, when you feed them. Think you'll be fine though, pinkies are gereally no harder to digest that waxies, there both fatty!
