Its very hard to tell exactly what she is eating, except for the little lick marks, sometimes she wont just lick the baby food off my finger, she is sooooooooo tiny! I cant wait until she is bigger and eating more obviously I will feel much better!

my leopard gecko babys the same age eat like pigs, they obviously chase down the crickets early am and evenings and their mealies are gone in the morning.........

here is a dumb question on crested geckos........
when they are like three months or so, the poo....what size is it? its hard to tell where she is doing it........
thanks

:With the little guys, I spoon feed them their fruit. I use the tester spoons I got from Baskin-Robins many years ago, one level spoonful of them is about a meal for a crestie up to 3 months or so. Younger ones might not even take as much, which is okay, since they also have crickets. Just hold a spoon up to their lips, get a tiny dab on them to get the gecko licking. Then it's just a matter of keeping the spoon close enough to make tongue contact. It doesn't take long for them to start deliberately licking the spoon.
:If you leave a small dish of it out, you might not even notice any eaten if the gecko is still small - they don't eat a lot of it in one meal, so the tell-tale lick marks might not be seen easily.
:Right now I've got 19 crested and auric babies to feed - takes me about 45 - 60 minutes.
