Hi! I’ve had daisy for about 2 months now!! She’s always been a great eater. I’m not sure how old she is but I got her pretty small. Right now she’s been eating around 13 mealworms every night. I can’t seem to find a care sheet indicating how much is too much. Now I’m afraid she may be over weight, I find her to be pudgy at the sides and can’t tel if that’s normal. I’ll attach pictures if someone could look and let me know!!:) also how much should I be feeding a gecko of around her age?? Thank u!

She looks like an adult healthy leopard gecko. I don't usually worry too much about weight. She has the build of some of my leopard geckos which is a little on the short side with a wide head, thick body and fat tail. You can always provide her with some climbing items in the cage, or take her out frequently and let her explore so she's getting some exercise. If you're feeding her every day, she's probably ready to eat only 2-3 times a week at this size.
