That is so cute I have always wondered if they would feed from ones hand like that.

Hehehehe Thanks.
Yeah I usually feel more comfortable with the bigger superworms, but I only had mealworms when I decided to video the fun.

I got him to feed from a pair of tweezers, along with a agama living "Down the Wall".
