    Default GECKO FOOD

    I feed my crestie gut loaded crickets with (reptile gutload,cricket drink)it's yellow in color and smashed up lil chunks. And every 2-3 days i'll put pears banana's, applesauce mixed up baby food for it. Well just 15mins ago i got him out and it was acting really weird like he couldn't move his legs, but once he got movin he looked fine. His colors were really dark, he was flickin his tail around like it was twitchin. When i put it back in his cage he laid on his back with his mouth open, i turned him over and now he's movin arouond but not much. Please respond asap i don't want to lose my crestie.

    Are you giving your crestie any additional supplementation? (other than gutloaded crix?) If so... what are you giving him and how often are you giving it? You said that the tail was flickering, but is your crested having seizures? Have his motor functions improved?

    yeah, i'm trying to find a vet, this suc@s because i thought i was doin everything right, i had a blue reptile light for night time i would mist him every night. I would also give him crickets and baby food every other day. I got him out this morning and looked at him again. He couldn't hardly move his front legs they were actually getting stuck, and he'd push himself with his back legs. The bad part is i would check on him every night and get him out and let him walk around my kitchen table, It's like it happened over night because i've never noticed it b4. THANX FOR YOUR HELP I'LL KEEP LETTING YOU KNOW.

    im not an expert but as far as i know dusting the crix is necessary. gut loading alone doesnt do it from what ive been told.
