Leopard Gecko Trevo Worms / Leopard Gecko Butter Worms

Resembling mealworms, Leopard gecko Trevo worms, also called Butter worms, are the soft bodies larvae of the Chilean moth (Chilecomadia moorei). These moths breed naturally on the so-called Trevo bush (Trevoa trinervis) where the feeding Trevo worms can be collected.

Leopard gecko Trevo worms are naturally high in fat and calcium. They are said to have more than double the calcium content of any other feeder insect!

Feeding Leopard Gecko Trevo Worms

Because of their fats tails, Leopard geckos can eat high volumes of Trevo worms without problems. Whereas the high fat levels cause obesity and possible addition problems in most other lizards, Leopard geckos tend to store this fat in their tails, mainly utilizing the proteins for growth and body function. Fresh Leopard gecko Trevo worms can be fed in a shallow, escape proof dish with calcium supplementation to stimulate its intake. Uneaten Leopard gecko mealworms should be removed and replaced on a daily basis.

Their sizes (2 - 3.8 cm / - 1 " in length) makes them perfect to feed to adult Leopard geckos. Trevo worms are perfect to improve poor body condition scores of emaciated individuals. It can be fed in larger amount to gravid Leopard gecko females. Although mealworms are a relative good food source for Leopard geckos, it is important not to feed them as the only protein source. Other higher protein feeder insects such as crickets and/or cockroaches should make out the bulk of the Leopard gecko food.
