This is a general rule for feeding Leopard Geckos:
-Baby Geckos: Insects that are around 0.4" long
-Juvenile Geckos: Insects that are around 0.25" long
-Adult geckos: Insects that are 1/2" to 3/4" long
As a rule, you shouldn't feed your gecko insects bigger than the space between his eyes. Here is a photo that explains why; as you can see there is a lot of 'cheek' on either side of the gecko's throat:
Leopard geckos eat crickets, mealworms, superworms, waxworms, Phoenix Worms®, hornworms and Dubia Roaches. As a warning; Leopard Geckos often won't eat for up to 3 weeks when you first get them. They are extremely territorial creatures of habit. Being moved from their growing pod and shipped takes them a little while to recover from. So please don't be alarmed if your new gecko doesn't eat right away!
