    Default Trouble with baby gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have had my crested gecko since the end of June. When I first got him he weighed about a gram. Since then hes only gained 2 grams. Hes seems to be barely growing in length. I feed Pangea growth formula and I've seen him eat it on multiple occasions and he wont touch a bug. I've tried every way I know how to feed him bugs. I've cut the heads off small crickets and dubia but he'll just barely lick on it then walk off. I really need some advice about this guy.

    Sometimes you can get a juvenile crested gecko to eat a cricket by holding him and gently poking the cricket at its mouth. They tend to bite at anything that encounters the mouth. It may take a few different times. That's how I got my gargoyle hatchlings into crickets and now they're big fans.
