mealworms and dubia roaches for puffers?

Planning ahead, don't have a figure 8 yet, but wondering about foods beside the ones I've read about. Since I have a never ending supply of dubia roaches and mealworms (for our leopard gecko), is it possibly to feed a puffer one or both of these?


Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

yes and no.

They will eat it but the chichin (shell) isn't digestible. The meal worms may be worth a weekly snack, but don't get them hooked on it. The same goes with krill.

If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".
