I'm a new user on this site and forgive my maybe stupid questions. I have been trying to feed my rough skinned newts and one is eating well(brine shrimp and mealworms), but the I have not seen the other one eat. He has shed his skin recently,I didn't know if that had anything to do with it. I also need to know what to look for to make sure the earthworms I buy are healthy. Also, I think the mealworms I am feeding are too large for my newts, any suggestions on what other worms to feed them? And where I might be able to get them? The pet stores in my area only sell mealworms.

The only stupid questions are the ones that dont get asked.I dont like mealworms personally as they are somewhat fatty and have those big teeth. You can get earthworms at a bait shop or walmart (in sporting goods) and they are usually healthy if they are moving around when you open the container. Just make sure you chop them up small enough for your newts.
