Winter storm-No food

Postby beardiebaby19 » Thu Feb 13, 2020 9:14 am

We ordered a large amount of BSFL about a week ago because we knew we were supposed to get a winter storm. Of course, they postponed the shipment, and now we are here without food. The nearest pet store is an hour away and the roads are way too slick to get there. I have quite a lot of mealworms for my leo. I also have superworms and waxworms, but those would be way too fatty to feed him for a few days. I have been giving him a salad full of veggies, but I wanted to know what to do for his live insect portion. The mealworms are very small. My beardie is definitely big enough to start eating them (6 months old, very big!), but I haven't given them to him before, so I obviously do not want to give him very much. Should I give him a few mealworms here and there?

Mealworms will be fine.

If you have any freshly molted supers, those would work too :)

A few days will be no issue what so ever :)

Ok thank you! He keeps looking towards where his food container is and tries to walk there! He’ll just have to get use to the worms for now, which shouldn’t be a problem considering he will eat anything.

I've had to make-do with mealies, supers, & wax worms when I ran short of dubias. It was likewise just a few days. No problem, even when he was much younger.
