Mashed Fruit and Honey as Food for Lizards

Some herbivorous and omnivorous lizards, but mostly geckos like the Bibron Gecko and Crested Gecko, will also tend to eat fruit. The best way to feed it to them is in a mash form. Baby food works very well as a base for the mixture. Adding honey to the mixture will attract the gecko, and make the entire mixture more appealing.

You should also add a multi-vitamin supplement, making sure to completely mix the vitamins into the fruit and honey. Add a few drops of water to make the mixture a little runny. The mash should not be too cold when you offer it to your lizards.

If your lizards are nocturnal, place a small amount in a dish at night. Make sure to remove the fruit in the morning and clean the dish before the next feeding.
