I recently got an adult leopard gecko. I would't say he was skinny when I got him but he could definitely gain some weight. What are good foods to help fatten him up? Is it possible to overfeed him? I've been feeding him mealworms every other day and mixing a few waxworms in with them. I also just got him some caliworms because I figured a little extra calcium wouldn't hurt.

It is possibly to over feed yes. When their tail is completely full they will start to store fat in their armpits, so if you see this it’s usually good to cut back a bit. They can eat pretty much any feeder a bearded dragon can, appropriately sized of course. Wax worms are good for fat however Leo’s love them and may become addicted.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
