    Is she in pain after eating??

    So I fed my gecko this morning and the crickets were a little bigger than usual. After I fed her she did something weird. She turns her head around and touched her nose to her side. She did it in both sides several times. I don’t know if she was in pain. ??

    How many?

    How many crickets do you feed a leo? So I heard its good for leos to have live insects for them to kill... But how many do you feed them? If you put to many crickets in they will kill the gecko!!!!!!! Also do you just put them in the food bowl for them to eat? Please reply to my quistions!
