Hornworms too big?

Postby celliott303 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 6:25 pm

Hi! I just want to give my male leopard gecko some variety of foods. I read that hornworms were really good and they will more than likely love them. So I ordered some. I didn’t pay attention to their size but I’d say they’re medium.
I bought them for my bearded dragon but for some reason, he’s not into bugs right now. So I wanted to offer them to my leopard gecko.
Do you think they’d be too big for my leopard gecko? I don’t want to cause any health issues to him. I do not know how old my Leo is; the pet store did not know his age. [Click image to enlarge]

They are soft so a leo might be able to handle them as long as they are still small. The full sized ones are probably too big though.
