they are fantastic to feed leos that are lacking calcium or need to put on abit of weight. Generally they are not good as a staple diet as they are high in calcium yes but also high in fat and protein which will put far to much weight on the gecko, also being an addictive live food - this is not very good if you run out of butter worms and try feeding locusts, crickets, or mealworms then the leo is mostly gunna say no to them cuz he or she is more addicted to butter worms.

Butter worms are accordingly similar to wax worms.
