    Default New Diet

    Well, I received my sample of the new crested pelleted diet from "The Bug Company" a few days ago. I've been too busy these past few days to give it a shot, but I'll let you guys know how the geckos take it.

    Sure is a funky-looking diet. Reminiscent of pelleted bird food, but smaller.

    My first impression is that the geckos will turn up their noses at it, but you never know until you give it a shot. The Bug Company was raving about how a few large breeders were loving this stuff (I forgot who they said, as they called a few months ago and I had a million things I was doing), but we'll see how it goes.

    Dose the smell remind you of kids breakfast cereal? I do not know why but every pellet food I ever opened smelled so much like fruity Pebbles I would be left with a craving.

    Seems like it'd be hard to transfer them from what is essentially a liquid diet to a dry pellet.

    Interesting though. What are the first few ingredients listed? Most of those pelleted diets are grain based.

    Is there a webpage for this specific product? I ran through "The Bug Company" site quickly and didn't see anything about a crested gecko diet product.

    IMO, that ingredients list is scary. Top ingredients are corn, tomato, chicken, fish? Really? ... and what the heck do geckos need artificial coloring for?
