first vacation witout herps

i have a big goin to my cottage for a week in a week or so and i dont know what to do with the feeding for my herps. I figure for my tegu and leopard gecko i can leave a bowl full of meal worms that they can get whenever they want but for the uro's if i leave vegetables in there they will eat it quickly and/or it will dry out. how do i supply food for a week when im not there?

Get a friend to feed 'em if you can. I just plump up my reptiles before I leave, and they seem to do fine.

I would strongly suggest finding someone that can come in instead of leaving a bowl of bugs. Though leos won't gorge themselves, a healthy tegu will eat that whole bowl. Your uros need fresh food as well, and there isn't much way around that without having someone come in. Not to mention if the water gets extremely foul during that period. Its always good to have someone check on them.
