Pangea Growth & Breeding Formula
Formerly known as Breeding Formula, same great food with a simplified name.
Generally speaking, most geckos are not going to clean their bowl every time as they may with the lower fat content formulas.
A complete gecko diet, Pangea Gecko Diet Breeding Formula is designed
to fulfill the unique requirements of reproductive crested geckos. The
main source of fat and protein in this food is from Insects (crickets
and black soldier fly larvae) while remaining palatable and well-liked
by almost all geckos. The fruits used are a delicious blend of Bananas
and Apricots that creates a feeding response similar to our other
formulas. The higher fat levels help keep egg production strong
throughout the breeding season. The calcium level is near the maximum
level for a complete diet. It is safe and sometimes necessary to add a
little plain calcium to the food if your females are becoming depleted.
Alternatively, you can offer plain calcium in a dish for your females to
lick from as needed.
To get the most out of this diet, fresh food should be offered at
least every other day during the breeding season even though there will
be some waste. Smaller more frequent feedings are more appropriate for
breeders than sparse feedings on which they tend to gorge themselves.
Live dusted insects are optional but can be offered once or twice a week
in place of Pangea Gecko Diet Breeding Formula for variety and to help
keep your geckos active and stimulated.
Pangea Gecko Diet Breeding Formula is ideally suited as a breeder
formula but can be fed to geckos of all life stages. As a growth
formula we have found that this formula provides optimum growth in
juvenile geckos. Crested geckos still grow best with a once or twice a
week cricket feeding until about 15 grams at which point live insect
feedings can be cut back or eliminated. Other species such as
leachianus, auriculatus, and Eurydactylodes grow nicely on this formula
from the get-go.
Directions: 2.5 parts water to 1 part powder. This
is a thicker reptile breeder mix and is usually eaten best when mixed
thick like ketchup.
Life Stages: Growth & Breeding (feed at least 4-5 days per week).
