Apples are extremely high in natural sugars. Be very careful that your pet does not get too much in its diet and becomes hooked on it instead of its balanced crested gecko diet or you will run the risk of it getting metabolic bone disorder. Organic and no sugar added is great for people, but really...in nature they would be getting fruit fly maggots in with the over ripe fruit.

They, like us can become addicted to the sugars in it- Should be fine unless he starts refusing his regular food if its just once a week.

As a Diabetic, I am aware that Sugar is not just the white powdery stuff you spoon into coffee, but it occurs naturally in fruits, veggies, and our bodies convert carbs into sugar naturally. Apples are one of the highest sugar fruits there are. (Grapes are pretty high up there too) Naturally sweet they make for a GREAT sugar substitute in baking.

Not saying dont treat your baby once in a while. Just sayin Apples have more sugar- added or not- and are naturally very sweet- tempting young geckos into craving sweets- like human kids on a cupcake binge! Hehee
IF the gecko still eats his normal foods and doesnt refuse them for said treat, rock on! Theres absolutely nothin to worry bout then. If it starts to lay off the other food in favor of the treat- personally Id take away the treat. (You prolly would too. Im stating all this info for the kids on this forum who might think its a great idea to feed em all the time that its not a wise idea, and why- not meaning to beat a dead horse so to speak.)
