Is there any way to get a Leopard Gecko to eat around you? I have two geckos, Laszlo (El Gordo) and Peaches (Devorador de gusanos), and they are both doing very well. Despite her name, Peaches is a a hesitant eater. I feed them both giant mealworms and occasionally waxworms as treats. I have had trouble with feeding Peaches and thought that she simply didn't like me or the food. However, she genuinely wants me to pick her up and loves to sleep on me. I didnt know how to get her to eat until I was walking out of the room and peered back in for a second. The gecko I've tried to feed for a week was chowing down on worms but when she saw me again she stopped. She didnt hide or anything, she just stopped. Is there any way to help my insecure leo?
