Feeding Pareodura pictusThe Paleodura pictus are true insectivores and small live prey easily accepted as crickets and mealworms.
Pictus Paleodura pups should be fed appropriately sized crickets dusted with a reptile vitamin supplement (provide them as many as the gecko will eat in a 20 minute period).
The Paleodura pictus once they become juveniles, food must be reduced 5-6 times a week with suitably sized crickets should be dusted with vitamins only once or twice a week.
The crickets dusted with vitamins not be dusted with pure calcium powder. Also mealworms can be placed on a plate in the tank at all times, these geckos do not eat more if they are not hungry. A good rule to find the right size of cricket, is that this should not be greater than the distance between the eyes of Paleodura pictus. They usually eat 2-3 crickets, but if you do not like crickets, you can buy silkworms.
