    Default Fimbriatus Can be picky eaters

    Cross-posted to the Uroplatus/leaf tail gecko owners and breeders group on Facebook.


    Simple reminder/lesson learned and confirmed about my fimbriatus last night.

    They do have food preferences. Sometimes strong ones.
    My male adult LTC is going after crickets voraciously tonight. I've been feeding the fims dubia almost exclusively for a long time now and was worried how skinny and apathetic the male had become towards food.

    Turns out, he's just picky.

    All the other fims, including the babies, like dubia (and crickets) no problem. (which is great for feeder size selection, and lack of noise and smell).

    But for this ONE guy, we'll have to keep some crickets around. Just thought I'd share!

    How is your little Fim doing? Has there been an improvement by lightly dusting her prey with Zoo Med Repti Calcium with D3?
