depends on your substrate......as you don’t want yor lizard eating dirt and sand with it’s mealworms as this could lead to intestinal compaction.

to be safe you should put your mealworms in a shallow bowl/dish or feed your plated by hand or w/feeder tongs. Sand isn’t a very good substrate for plated lizards though as they like to burrow into the substrate. How’s your pet doing as I recall you were having heating/feeding problems a few weeks ago? Hope all’s well.....have a nice X-mas.
