Spring fasting?

I have two adult females living together. I've had them each for about 2 years, and they have always been voracious feeders. Within about the last 3 or 4 weeks, they stopped eating mealworms entirely. I had been feeding them strictly mealworms, because they gobbled them up & ignored crickets. I tried crickets, and they only ate about 2. Both have pretty fat tails & don't seem to be losing weight. They prowl around their cage at night, but ignore the mealies.


Do geckos have a spring hormonal change that makes them stop eating? I went through that will my ball pythons, and am just wondering if leos do the same thing.

Thanks
