Well recently i realized that 28 crickets a month is expensive (i'm 12..) so i got a jar of 500 mealworms for 7$ instead, and i'll feed crickets maybe for one or 2 weeks a month, mealworms the rest of the time. i have a little ceramic dish for the mealies. I have 10 in there at a time, and i just let my 4" leo eat as much as she wants. Well thats not very much, because lately shes been eating less. I think she might be having trouble finding the dish adn realizing theres food in it. The first day i switched over to mealworms (saturday night) she ate 4, which i dropped in front of her. The second day she didn't eat any, even when i dropped them in front of her, and last night she only ate 1 when i dropped it in front of her and didn't eat any from the dish over night. She is shedding, pooping, peeing, etc... everything seems fine. What could i be doing wrong? Sorry for the long post....
Thanks!

-Ari
