    Default Are wax worms okay?

    have a 7 month Crestie and I was wondering if it was okay to feed them wax worms. And what size would you need? How many should you feed? How often? Thanks in advance!

    Yes they're fine as a treat. High fat content though so keep it to a couple times a month. You can also feed phoenix worms, young silkworms.

    Width no wider than space between your gecko's eyes; this shouldn't be a problem, waxworms are small. Two or three for a feeding is good. No more than that.

    If your gecko will eat them thats awesome. My geckos tend to completely ignore worms and only crickets can get their attention. Wax worms are really high fat content so I wouldn't recommend to feed more then around 4 per feeding.
