I got 2 males each about 4 years old now,
When they were young hatchlings/juvis is fed them every other night a few gutloaded/dusted pin sized crickets with an occasional waxworm for weight gain (they were skinny pet store pickups)

Now I feed every 2-3 days. They never seem to stop eating so I have to limit them before their stomachs distend. I usually feed 3-4 good and fat crickets (gutloaded) and I dust em every other meal. I also give them 1-2 super worms that I stun. They have a hard time with the carapace of the worms so I try to be conservative with feeding them. I'll even cut the worms in half if im not lazy.

I feed them usually in the evening or late-night when they are activep
