    I actually like it!

    By 3DogMom on Apr 18, 2020 top25Contributor

    I keep dubia roaches and mealworm farms for my leopard gecko. On occasion I also offer crickets. I was not sure about this food as you hear all the time that packaged diets are not necessary when you use fresh fruits and veg. However I live in the south and the humidity quickly molds everything, and mold will kill an entire roach colony fairly quickly so I wanted to try this. The roaches absolutely eat it and it produces a lot less frass than the fruit and veg, though I still offer carrots for moisture. I also have caught crickets eating it in the enclosure, which many reptile keepers advised me if you do not provide food for crickets, they will bite your gecko.

The really nice thing about this is my gecko doesn't try to eat it, unlike the pea I watched him eat a couple of weeks ago (yikes) so i feel a lot better leaving this in the enclosure for crickets than peas! … more

    Great for Gut-loading feeder insects

    By Kittysafety on Mar 23, 2020

    Our leopard gecko absolutely inhales live meal worms. Pre-feeding the worms Mazuri helps keep him healthy.
