Picking Beginner Pet Lizards : Crested Gecko Diet

nearly as much as the other two probably. You're looking at maybe again one to two dozen
crickets a week, not a whole lot. And you can supplement that with a little bit of mealworms,

give them to him, the it just for me it makes me feel a little bit better about feeding
them off, have to worry about them causing less trouble for the crescent gecko. Where
the crescent gecko's dietary needs are a little bit different is they can also get baby food
or what's also called crescent gecko diet, which is a powdered substance you mix into
a gel and offer to the crescent gecko, and you can do that you do that on a daily basis,
maybe offer the insects every two or three days. What that does, is that it's going to
cut down a lot of the cost for you and it's also going to be good for him in general.
