i buy 4 a month from the pet shop frozen, 1 each for the beardies and one for the fat tail. I always have a good rummage for the smallest ones and make sure no legs have fallen off because i feel too sorry for the ones with snapped off legs lol
they are most likely bred specifically to feed as livefood. I think its worse when people buy them from pet stores to just feed. If your going to do it u should breed ur own and they shouldnt be fed live from over fuzzy size. thats my view on it anyway.
i agree, but i cabt see why you'd want to feed live, but thats your choice. steve (WD) gets a pinkie every couple of weeks, but he'll only take it if its wiggled with forceps, no fingers, and he wont touch it if its still!
if you want to feed a gecko live, and breed your own, be prepared for alot of mice. you' only feed one a month, and they will have a litter of 6-12 every 40days ish, so you'd need to find homes/stomachs for 5-10 pinkies each month.
much easier to buy frozen from a pet shop-cheaper also, no food, cage, substrate or bedding for frozen!
