Unlike other geckos found throughout the world, this specific species is an omnivore—meaning it eats plants and animals. You’ll want to feed your pet a well-balanced diet that’s full of calcium. A crested gecko eating diet lacking enough calcium can lead to metabolic bone disease. You can also find powdered calcium supplements that can be added to their regular food for added nutrition.
When it comes to mealtime, an offering of powdered commercial crested gecko food will typically do just fine. Treats can include a variety of insects—like crickets and mealworms. These should be given to your gecko 2 to 3 times a week in the evening. You can also use sweet baby foods like peaches and apricots as treat options.
It’s also essential that your gecko has access to fresh drinking water, in a shallow dish, at all times.
