What can crested geckos eat

Step 1: housing


  1. Crested geckos don't require an awful amount of storage space. A bare minimum for a baby is a 5 gallon. But an 8 gallon or larger is recommended. For adults a minimum is 12 gallons however a 15 gallon is reccommended. The substrate for babies shouldn't be some type of floor, rather it should be either paper towel or repti carpet. For adults, you can use coconut shells or un-fertilized soil. Crested geckos need a place to hide, so you should definitely heavily forest your cage. At least 2 plants. I also think that a vine is a good idea too. Another important point is that the cage should be larger than it is wide.

Step 2: tempurature and humidity


  1. Crested geckos are very easy to care for. They thrive at room temperature, but the humidity needs to be a little higher than a room. The humidity should be between 60 to 90. A squirt bottle or an automatic mister can be used to ensure this moisture. To measure humidity, you might want to buy a hygrometer.

Step 3: food and treats


  1. Crested geckos are primarily herbivores. A very good meal is Rapashy Gecko with a crested diet. It is a complete food for crested geckos. You can feed crested geckos only the rapashy, but crested geckos do love crickets. I feed my gecko 5-10 crickets every Friday. Make sure the crickets are dusted in calcium powder.

Step 4: shedding


  1. If your crested gecko turns pale or even all white, it's not, you are SICK.What does it mean your crested gecko is about to shed! You don't need to clean up the old skin because you eat it :() ewww! .You will likely notice their old skin the next day or two, if the crested gecko has been pale for more than a week, i suggest seeing a veterinarian.
