Thread: A gecko's diet?
A gecko's diet?
What household items would a gecko eat ie; fruit, bread, cheese, whatever? Thanks.
are you serious???[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] BEARDY BEN
Try some insects11:55 PM [Tuatara] Grizz.. is a bear, isnt that a gay term?? I thought he might be with jay or something
Some geckos will eat fruit mush or drink fruit juice, but aussie natives are almost exclusive insectivores.Fool Injected Physhopath
Ah okay. Thanks. I read on a site that they eat mangos and stuff like that but wasn't sure it if was an aussie site. Just wanted to know for a backup plan if I ever ran out of crickets for my gecko and he needed food.
best thing is never to run out
This is why you should never impulse buy an animal.
What kind of gecko did you get and what did the petshop tell you to feed it and how to look after it? You said you've put it in your empty snake tank..do you have it setup for a gecko yet?
Can someone get her onto a proper caresheet for it...but horsy you need to tell us what sort of gecko you got, that would help a lot.
I set up my snake tank how the gecko caresheets suggested (It's been misted, has a large branch and a little plant with leaves on it, newspaper bedding as I dont want to put the proper substrate in my snake tank but will put it in my gecko one, a hide and some little beetles. Right now he's up onthe branch) and have researched tons. Am about to go out and buy a proper tank for him now and some food. He was meant to be sold as reptile food but is alert and healthy, a typical asian house gecko. I know how to look after him and feed him, just wanted to know about the fruit for something to occupy him until I go out today and buy him some crickets.
*slaps self on the forehead*
Horsy the asian house gecko is an introduced pest!!!
It is illegal to keep them as pets!!!
Please learn a little bit about the animals you purchase in future (before you purchase them).Nature blog: http://whawha88.wordpress.com/

Jordo, that is not entirely correct.
In NSW, they are on the species list, so its state dependant.
introduced or not,still make good pets,and prolly one of the only reptiles in aus..that you can walk out in the backyard and get a pair,keeps the interest stimulated and costs nothing lol
I hope he didnt cost you too much11:55 PM [Tuatara] Grizz.. is a bear, isnt that a gay term?? I thought he might be with jay or something
No he was $10. Being sold as reptile food and he was so gorgeous that I couldn't let him do it. I bought him a large click clack to stay in and set it up all nice. He looooooved the mealworms I gave him and loves his branch. Uploading some photos.
