    Default Newbie Question


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have three Madagascan Velvet Geckos, I searched high and low and finally found a care sheet for them, but I am not sure whether or not I should be offering them fruits. I have them on a cricket and mealworm diet but someone told me I should be feeding them some fruits as well and I just want to clarify before I try it. They don't seem to go after the meal worms as much as the crickets (I can only assume because they don't move as much.) Thanks so much.

    Yes, these guys will definitely eat fruit mixture/diet/yogurt. Many Madagascan geckos-Phelsuma, Blaesodactylus, Geckolepis-eat fruit. And they love it. But don't just take it from me, here's a quote from Jon Boone in a previous Blaesodactylus article:
    Very cool to see these imported now. They are giants (12 inches + total length) and have giant incubation time = 9-12 months incubation with a diapause of about 6-7 months! They, along with all other Blaesodactylus species, chow on fruit mixtures, yogurt, etc.

    Thanks, sorry I know Newbie questions can get annoying. I've owned snakes my whole life and these are my first geckos.
