A New Complete Gecko Diet From Pangea!

  • Made With Over 60% Real Fruits
  • No Seeds, Nuts, Or Seed Meals
  • Protein From Whey Isolate and Egg Whites
  • Guaranteed to Produce An Enthusiastic Feeding Response!

We are excited to announce the release of our new Complete Diet for crested geckos, gargoyle geckos, leachianus, chahoua, day geckos, and all other fruit eating geckos. Using what we learned while formulating the original PFM™ starting back in 2008, and working off of that platform, we have come up with a diet that is both palatable and complete. The Pangea Fruit Mix™ Complete formula was developed and tested here at Pangea on one of the largest collections of geckos in the United States.  We then hired a PhD in animal nutrition to make sure we got it right.

 

PFM™ Complete Diet Pangea crested Gecko food uses a combination of fruits that your geckos won't be able to resist. It has been formulated using only the highest quality ingredients, including All Natural Dried Fruits, Whey Protein Isolate, Egg White, Bee Pollen, Spirulina, Probiotics, and more. Our ingredients are selected to contain very low levels of Anti-Nutrients like Oxalates and Phytates. We do not use any seeds, nuts, seed meal, cereal grains or high oxalate fruits or vegetables in our product.

Life Stages: Growth (feed daily or alternated with live food) Maintenance (fed 3-5 times per week) Breeding (feed daily or alternate with live food).

Anti-Nutritional Factors

You can think of anti-nutrients as the ugly side of otherwise good things. As humans we eat foods that contain anti-nutrients all the time, usually without any noticeable detriment to our health. In a normal varied diet these food items can be quite healthy for us, however if we were to eat these items every single day with every single meal we could potentially develop serious calcium and mineral deficiencies.

 

Oxalate (Oxalic Acid)- Binds to calcium and other minerals, making them unusable to the gecko, and can contribute to poor egg quality, slow growth, weak bones, increased incidence of Floppy Tail Syndrome, and other calcium related issues. High levels of Oxalates are common in many fruits, vegetables, cereal grains, flowers, seeds, nuts, seed meals, and legumes. PFM™ Complete Gecko Diet was formulated to contain very low levels of this anti-nutrient.

 

Phytate (Phytic Acid)- Binds to calcium, zinc, manganese, and iron. Contributes to similar issues as Oxalate and can also interfere with the digestion of Protein. Phytate is common in cereal grains, seeds, nuts, seed meals, vegetables, bran, and various other ingredients.

 

Other Anti Nutrients- We have also paid close attention to some other key anti nutrients.

 

Trypsin inhibitors- Found in substantial levels in many foods but particularly in Soy products. These interfere with protein digestion. We do not include any ingredients that contain trypsin inhibitors.

 

Cyanogenic Glycosides- Found in some seeds, nuts and tubers. Can release hydrogen cyanide when digested. Although that sounds very scary, most foods do not release enough of this substance to be immediately toxic. Since the long term effects of even low levels of this in daily fed diets are not well known, we do not include ingredients that contain them.

 

Goitrogens- Can cause thyroid problems. Found in some fruits and vegetables. Pangea Fruit Mix™ Complete does not contain goitrogenic ingredients.

 

Saponins- Found primarily in soy and legumes. Pangea Fruit Mix™ Complete does not contain ingredients that contain saponins.

The absence of high levels of anti nutrients combined with the correct levels of calcium, phosphorous, vitamins, and nutrients helps to ensure healthy growth, reproduction, good bone density, and egg quality.

My geckos love this diet, smells like a people smoothie!

All 13 of my cresties love the watermelon the best. My hatchlings especially love it! Great diet for a picky crested!

I was using repashy cgd for all of my cresties. Then i heard about pangea. The difference between what was left in the bowl at the end of the day was crazy. With repashy, there would be 90% left over, to the point where i wasnt even sure they were eating.and i was wasting a lot of food. With pangea, hardly any food was left. Most of the bowl was liked clean. That speaks for itself in my book. The texture of pangea is less gritty too. Seems more pleasant to eat. 100% will buy again.

Wow. Our 3-year-old crested gecko had completely lost interest in prepared foods, ignoring nearly every version/flavor of Repashy. Not wanting to be a professional cricket breeder, I gave Pangea Watermelon a try. The dish is cleaned out, quickly, every feeding. Couldn't ask for more.

Wow! Instant love from my crestie, he would give a thumbs up if he could. I've tried some other products and this by far has received the quickest response. It even looks tasty! Thanks a ton and keep making excellent gecko grub. :D

I received my Watermelon Mango Pangea Fruit Mix today! &I'm soooo glad I decided to give it a try. I got such a GREAT feeding response from all of my guys an gals. I won't be using any other CGD again. Thanks for such a great product Pangea!

I have 3 cresties currently and they all devour the Watermelon variety of Pangea. It's nice to see them all helps thy and growing well, which I give all the credit to the food they eat!

I got my crestie 2 weeks ago and had bought repashy cgd. I then decided to order some of this to give her a variety. I saw her eat for the first time about a week after I got her. She was eating this watermelon-mango mix. I've seen her eat again since then and when I got home from work last night and looked in her cage, half of her food was gone. This is the most she's eaten since I've had her and I noticed she looks more plump. She's a juvi so it's good to see that she's starting to grow. I highly recommend this. Just ordered some banana papaya.

I'm relatively new to cresties and decided to try the PCD Watermelon Mango for my crew. I've only had it a week and they all are eating it better than the previous food I had been offering. Smells good to me and must smell good to them too! Thanks Pangea!
