My iggy is fine. He is just over a year old now, and extremely grouchy. I think I started him off in too big of a home, but I love him just the same. Once I pick him up and start petting his head, he calms quickly, then we share a banana and it's all good, LOL.
As for my leo, I feed her both mealworms and superworms, as well as crickets. I try to change it up to give her some variety. I always have a variety of sizes for mealworms too, as I breed them myself as I have a tarantula who eats them too. So feeding a small leo wouldn't be a problem. I can get waxworms but they are very expensive here and I would have to get them shipped in by a supplier over 8 hours away. Actually, most of them are quite costly for what I could get them elsewhere for. I pay $6 for 2 doz superworms, $5 for 2 doz crickets, and $4 for 2 doz mealworms. She doesn't seem so fond of the superworms though. Mind you, she is 3 years old and amd eating them for the first time.
We had a small leo at work not to long ago and she could easily eat 5 mealworms and 2 small crickets a day. I can't even get my fully grown one to eat that much. And I have to hand feed her or she won't eat at all. I am not sure what is going on with this poor girl, but I hope I am able to figure something out for her. If I can get her to eat twice a week, I am lucky. And she usually only eats, maybe 2 or whatever I decide to feed her.
