How can you eat food to a crested who doesn’t want to eat?
If you have problems with live food and he doesn’t like to eat Repashy or supplemented fruit porridges. If the animal does not eat , then you deface the nose and then ingest food when he cleans it with his tongue. If you see that move sharply to remove any content of the nose, do not worry as you will see later in licking clean the debris.
How can I control how many live food my crested eats?
So much so as to avoid unfortunate accidents, and that the live food fed gecko one day. The food will live in a tupperware overnight before or after spraying Night which will enable our gecko. So the food will not go live and our crested the tupperware will you go there to eat. We start at the legs if it is live food crickets and grasshoppers, to prevent escape and jump out of tupperware. So we know thow much live food our crested eats.
My geckos have started to mate ……How do I know when and where did the setting nut?
To resolve this question, we must first have a thorough monitoring of the weight of our female, especially during the breeding season, and if we see a drop in weight after a while you start breeding is sure to be to put eggs somewhere.
The female put the eggs in the hiding place that is better because it can be buried in the roots of a plant that have the terrarium, as this substrate. For this reason, it is advisable to block access to the plant substrate by stones, etc.. To encourage the preservation of eggs and facilitate the search is best to prepare the female nesting area. That will be something as simple as a medium tupperware hidden terrarium with leaves and a piece of cork which will cover the substrate incubation. Just wait and we will be watching if the female has left us a little gift.
As substrate incubation can be used from coir, vermiculite, perlite mix: perlite (30%) + vermiculite (15%) + akadama (55%) or the substrate incubation Repashy: SuperHatch. We have used all except the Repashy and the best result that has been given the mix. Since the coconut itself and retains too much moisture can cause the appearance of fungus on eggs and egg vermiculite adheres to preventing the proper exchange of gases through the shell. Substrates, except dfel SuperHatch, hydrate with wather ratio 1:1.
