leopard gecko diet

What do baby leopard Geckos eat?

  • Baby Geckos: You should feed your baby gecko crickets that are around 3/8 inches in size.
  • Juvenile Geckos: You should feed your juvenile gecko crickets that are around 1/4 inch in size.
  • Adult geckos: You should feed your adult gecko small adult to adult size crickets.

You can buy crickets easily online or thru ebay.

How often do you feed leopard Geckos?

  • Active, healthy leopard Geckos can be fed as much as they can eat in 15-20 minutes.
  • Leopard Geckos younger than one year should be fed every day.
  • Healthy adult leopard geckos should be fed every other day.
  • Sickly leopard geckos should be fed once a day until they regains their strength.
  • Food should be given late in the day or early in the evening, as that is the time Leopard Geckos are likely to start hunting in the wild.
  • If your Leopard gecko is a problem eater, feed it normally, but leave a dish with worms in its tank in case it wants to eat later.

As mentioned before, most Leos have a healthy appetite. However, while their little bellies may be cute, they should not be allowed to gorge on large amounts of food. You should ensure you tailor the amount of food you give to your Leo according to their eating habits. If your Leo tends to over eat, set an amount of food you want to feed it each day, and stick to that.

What should a Leopard Gecko drink?

Your Leopard Gecko must drink clean, fresh water, that should be available in your gecko’s tank at all times.

Make sure the dish is shallow, so that your Leo can drink from it easily, and there is no chance of it drowning if it managed to climb into it.

As the substrate in the cage should be kept dry, the dish should be stable to avoid spillage.
