:I dunno what happened, all of my hatchlings have been taking in mealworms and crickets fine, but today when I was looking through their enclosures, I noticed some undigested mealworms. Anyone know how to prevent this from happening?? Im assuming the acid content of their stomach's arent strong enough to digest the hard exoskeleton of the mealworms so what would help make
their stomachs more acidic. I took out all the mealworms and Im currently feeding them crickets at the moment.


that happens every now and then, its no big deal if its just occasionally. if they start never digesting them fully then there is a problem. try to use mostly the freshly shed mealworms, if u have enough. otherwise, use mostly crickets. do your geckos get enough calcium?
