Hello everyone! This is probably a stupid question but I can't really find an answer online. Can Leo's have dried crickets and mealworms? I am going to bet the answer is no. The ONLY reason I am asking is because I bought I dried veggie mix at Petsmart to have on hand and it said it was for tortoises. However I missed the giant part of the packaging that mentioned it contained crickets and mealworms. Should I just take this back or pick them out?

I would take it back if I were you. It wouldn't hurt them to eat it, but I would doubt they eat it in the first place and it wouldn't give them any additional dietary benefits than a "normal" diet would.

Crickets and mealworms are not part of their routine diet so return it. Pesticide free weeds and grasses is their basic diet requirements. Variety is key as well, but there's no need for what you have.
