Be patient, especially if they are juv.,most babies prefer insects at first, but they will slowly start to eat the babyfood as they get older.Good Luck and Happy Cresties!!


:I fell in love with cresties after reading a post on the leo forum. After I saw my first one in person I had to have it. I now have two little cresties, Gollum and Gandalf.
:I have been feeding them babyfood and crickets. I've seen them catch and eat crickets but I haven't seen them go near the babyfood. I did put a couple of raisins in their tank and I saw Gandalf licking at them one evening. I do dust the crickets with vitamin powder and I have a bowl of calcium in their cage. Are their any babyfood flavours they like better? I've also tried putting fresh grapes in and they didn't seem to care much for them either. Any suggestions?
:Thanks, Randi
