The Pangea Growth and Breeding formula, with added insects is a complete gecko diet that is ideal for supporting breeding females, with a high fat content and extra calcium too, to enable them to recover easily after egg laying.
The main source of fat and protein in this food is from Insects (crickets and black soldier fly larvae), but it is still very palatable, with a delicious blend of Bananas and Apricots, that creates a feeding response similar to our other formulas. The higher fat levels help keep egg production strong throughout the breeding season, and the calcium level is near the maximum level for a complete diet.
It is safe and sometimes necessary to add a little plain calcium to the food if your females are becoming depleted. Alternatively, you can offer plain calcium in a dish for your females to lick from as needed. To get the most out of this diet, fresh food should be offered at least every other day during the breeding season, even though there may be some waste. Smaller but more frequent feedings are more appropriate for breeders, to keep them in a good condition. This is a complete diet, but can be fed alongside live dusted insects for variety, and to help keep your geckos active and stimulated.
This Growth and Breeding formula was initially designed as a breeder formula, but can be fed to geckos of all life stages. To mix this, we recommend 1 part powder to 2.5 parts water, but you will find this is usually much thicker than other Pangea formulas. Once the bag is open, it will keep for 6 months at room temperature, or 12 months in the fridge, so you can be sure to get the full life out of this
Generally speaking, most geckos are not going to clean their bowl everytime as they may with the lower fat content formulas.
