    Hello everyone. New to having Leo's here and I have 2 hatchling. I am considering starting a dubia colony to feed them and just have a question for any experienced Leo keepers. Will my Leo's be able to eat adult dubia once they are adults themselves? Or will the dubia roach adults he too large of able food item for them?

    The adults will be a bit much for a Leo. You want to keep the adults for breeding. If you get too many you might be able to sell them to other lizard keepers or even to the local pet store.
    And bringing their temps down will slow down the breeding.

    Thanks. I wasn't sure and am glad for the advice there. I actually do have a couple other friends and one local mom and pop store/breeder who I get my dubias from now that already asked for extras. I just expect a lot for 2 geckos. But then again. More food means easier for more animals.
