    Default Baby leopard...

    Hello! I recently got a pretty young leopard gecko. He's about 5 grams, 4 inches long. I named him Pardus, for those who would like to know. He's super interactive, and already learnt the sound of the cricket bag. He'll come out of his hide when he thinks it's food time. However, he's been doing this during the day like he is hungry. I feed him 4 crickets every day normally. Should I increase his daily amount of crickets?

    If he'll eat more, give him more. He may not be consistent from day to day anyway.

    Thanks for the response! In the last couple of days, I've been feeding him about 6. He is a very hungry little guy!

    Quick question: is a temperature of 93/92 degrees Fahrenheit on the hot side of his cage okay?

    I don't know much about leopard geckos - do they eat other than crickets?

    I am also a leopard gecko noob, but I believe they can also eat mealworms and an occasional superworm when they are adults.

    As long as you're measuring temperature on the floor (not in the air) with a reliable digital thermometer with a probe or a laser temp gun, 92-93 is perfect. Crickets, mealworms, super worms, hornworms, silkworms and roaches are all fine and variety is good.
