How long has it been since it ate the crickets? And by tiny, how big do you mean? If it is really small, that might be all they eat. If I feed my fully grown leos babyfood, they only eat about 1 ml of it. It really seems to fill them up. Try using a medicine eye dropper (well cleaned of course) and put a tiny bit on the tip of the nose. When your gecko licks it, gently move the dropper back in front of the nose and squeeze out a tiny bit more while it is still licking to get the rest.

I have never worked with Panther geckos, so hopefully someone else can help more throughly.

Good Luck
