I know crested that have been on just baby food (like tegan's mix) all their lives and are quite healthy. I don't suggest using mealies or waxworms as a staple. Especially not mealies. Waxworms are very good occasional treats. Wax worms are very fating and don't have a lot of nutrition in them. Mealies are hard for the crested to eat and digest.
:I have seen pictures of crested geckos and think they are the cutest geckos around and would love to keep one or two.
:But...I have a thing against crickets.
:Would it be okay to feed them just mealworms, wax worms, and the occasional fruit babyfood, or do they really need to have a more varied diet?
:I know that variety is best, and I would be okay with a cricket every so often, but I don't want to have to try to keep crickets alive for an extended period of time. I've tried before and got so pissed off that I chucked the whole box of crickets outside. If they need to have crickets on a daily basis, I won't get any geckos.
:Thanks for any responses.
