You can also blend up gutlaoded & dusted bugs into the fruit. This is handy if your crested gecko does not take live food. We recommend having a separate blender for this purpose! Just remember, adding bugs does not necessarily make this a complete diet. You need to be sure they are receiving a balance of macro and micro nutrients. Supermarket fruit and a single type of bug feeder is not an adequate crested gecko diet.
Good fruits for cresties - Pangea Reptile
The newer Pangea brand, Pangea Fruit Mix Complete, has seen similar results in health with a good feeding response. We use it as well as Repashy products because it is a well-balanced meal replacement on paper and with testing on multiple generations of crested geckos. Matt Parks, the maker of the product, still recommends live insect feedings to supplement the diet and for behavioral stimulation.
Pangea Fruit Mix™ Watermelon Mango Complete Gecko Diet
Yes, crested geckos can eat crickets and many other feeder insects. However, they should not make up the majority of the diet as in the wild, they feed on both bugs and fruits, as well as pollen and nectar from flowers. In some cases, they may even consume flower buds – this is confirmed with their relative species, the Gargoyle Gecko. We have also observed a crested gecko lick pollen/nectar from an orchid flower within a planted terrarium.
