Hello Klink67,
They can eat meal worms, super worms however are a little too hard for them to digest since their shell is harder, so it’s not recommended to give them more then one or two every now and then.
I didn’t want to deal with crickets either, but my girls won’t eat meal worms at all no matter what I do to them.

Good luck :)

Mealworms, roaches, silkworms, pheonix worms are all great feeder insects :)

AFTs are generally very handleable, provided you get a nice young captive bred individual. Their temperments are very similar to Leos.

The leopard gecko are definetley more enteraining to wathc, but the afts are very melow and arch their backs when you scratch them. My gecko acts like a kitty.
