    Exclamation Need some help/advice regarding mealworms

    So i went away again for a week and what food i did have for some reason died the day after i left. So my grandma was looking after them and she needed to get food for them, so she got mealworms and crickets. She checked online and none of the sites she looked at said toads cant eat mealworms. I remember reading a post on here saying mealworms arent good for toads. She gave Coconut a mixture of small crickets and mealworms from Monday till today. She had to cut and tweezers feed my toadlets the mealworms. I'm not sure the exact amount she feed Coconut, although i figure between 10 and 20. Is this enough to cause harm? Im really worried. By the sound of it she feed only 1 or 2 half pieces to 2 of the toadlets as one wouldnt eat them. Is that enough to cause harm to them?

    They should be fine. Watch for any signs of impaction. I'd feed earthworms for the next week or so to help everything pass through.
