    I was wondering what sort of fruits Crested Geckos like?
    I was thinking of letting them eat a small slice as a treat.

    They do like bananas, mango, cherries... pretty much anything with a strong smell. But you should avoid feeding citrus fruits (acidic) and starfruit (high oxalates).

    Some great choices that are high in calcium include papaya and fig. Even though they like them, bananas are very low in calcium and high in phosphorus, long term feeding can lead to calcium deficiency.

    With fresh fruits you can chop it up or I would put it in a blender and that way they can lick it better.

    I've been told not to feed them baby food cuz of the added sugar. Its best to mash your own fresh fruits!

    Avoid baby food! Cresties tend to have a sweet tooth and if given baby food they'll quickly turn down CGD FOR baby food which should never replace CGD in my opinion. Mash your own fruit, banana peach mango etc. Mine devour it when I mix it with their feeding of CGD.
