Ever wonder if Waxworms and Mealworms can co-habitate??

They can't.


I learned this the hard way. I always have a few "treat" items handy for Gordon. So once a week he gets a mealworm, sometimes twice a week. Last week I decided to get a few waxworms to mix up his weekly treat. Without hesitation I just put them in with the mealworms that I keep in some oats in a little container. The next morning I woke up and went to feed Gordon a waxworm, and there was only ONE left of the FOUR I purchased!! Little jerks...

Yep it turns out that mealworms are a bit nasty! I put a little silkie that one of the geckos didn't eat in the mealworm dish. It didn't end well for the silkie :(
