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 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.

Product of the year

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.

 

Adding Insects To The Diet

PFM™ Complete has been formulated as a complete diet. While it is not entirely necessary to offer insects when feeding a complete diet, it is beneficial to their health and to their mental enrichment.

I gave my baby Crestie some Repashy. She liked it. Then I tried some Pangea. She ate it in a heartbeat! I definitely recommend. It even smells good!

I have a very picky/ spoiled crested gecko(s). One in specific who refuses to eat Repashy and is very picky about bugs, but will eat the Pangea Watermelon & Mango Gecko Diet in a heartbeat. Another plus is that it smells great and (must taste great)!

I have an extremely picky R. Chahoa. It absolutely refuses to eat the insect blend, most repashy's, and even some insects, but the first night I made the watermelon mango mix the bowl was licked clean! Finally a meal replacement I can count on when I can't feed insects. Thank You!

This was the first flavor of Pangea I picked up years ago when I first started keeping various gecko species. It's still a hit here years later!

If you have tried all the other CGD and your crestie doesn't like them, I would highly recommend you getting this one!!

I've been trying and failing to get a juvenile crestie to eat the "cheap stuff", but today after receiving this in the mail, I was able to get her to eat quite a bit!! Thank you!

Repashy is a good CGD but I have to say Pangea is better. I recently bought this flavor because of the reviews and feeding responses people were getting. My geckos seem to like it better, I've noticed they eat more of it than Repashy.

Fed my 18 month old gargoyle "Smokey" on Repashy his whole life. I spoon feed him each night as I handle him(and we watch youtube) and leave a milk-cap full in his terrarium. He always eats the tip of the spoonful and is done. Bought some Watermelon Mango Pangea just to try something new. He ate the entire milk-cap full off the spoon in a couple minutes! Gobbled it down so fast he saved some for later all over his face! He doesn't even eat the fresh mango I give him once a month like this! Needless to say the 2oz sample I bought will not last. Customer for life now apparently!

My crested gecko named- rusty leaf loves this food it easy to paper and store. It looks and smells very natural.

This stuff is the best! It smells like a smoothie and the picky crested gecko approves! :) Made of real fruit and keeps my gecko healthy and growing. Thanks Pangea! Will definitely be purchasing again.
