I'll be sure to post pics, and keep everyone updated as to how they do on that diet.

I think I'm going to try the T-Rex diet and freeze dried crix. I will probably start picking up a dozen or two live ones on the weekends, so that they'll get to have a little fun at least a couple days a week.

I thought about getting some Ackies from him too, but I'm going to stick with the Crested Geckos for now. Gary doesn't talk his stuff up as much as he could, but he must go through hell and high water to get his hands on good breeding stock. Everything (all snakes so far) that I have that was produced by him has been way above average.

I've been to his house a few times, and I have to say, he keeps everything immaculate.

What's your website address?

Not sure if you're familiar with Carpet Pythons, but I got these Irian Jayas from him, as babies back in 2001 and look at them now. These are F1 100% pure, and are considered some of the best Irian Jayas in the U.S. (pic may take a while to load if you're on dial up)

:I understand your weariness of using the Crested Gecko diet exclusively. It can be a time saver to use on those busy days, but I feel variety is best. It is just one of the reasons why I always suggest that crix should be a staple with fruit a few times a week. Also for the fact they do not need to eat the fruit (excess sugar) every day. It would prob be okay for an adult diet, but young animals do grow better with the high protein intake, at least in my experiences.

:I have responded to Gary’s post on a number of occasions. You should be very happy with one of his animals, be sure to post some pics =). The site looks great, we really need to find the time to redo ours too….lol. I also did not know he bred ackies, I might have to buy some off him in the future =)
