Hey everyone,

I recently got a few leopard geckos for my wife's classroom. I'm experienced with snakes and some lizards and turtles, but leos are new to me.

One thing I noticed is that the four I got seem to have no interest in mealworms and only go after the wax worms if I dangle the worms in front of their faces.
Also, the wax worms I got don't seem to eat anything and don't last long, so I'm worried they might not be providing enough nutrition to the geckos. What do you guys think?

I've been feeding the leos crickets since we got them in October and they are all healthy and happy. I just wanted to provide them with some nutritional variety.
Currently, I feed the crickets a mix of carrots, Ghann's cricket chow and Fluker's Orange cubes. I dust them with calcium (w/o D3). Do any of you recommend different supplements?

Thanks.
