It’s not that long, same with every reptile. cresties don’t eat crickets on a daily basis, I give about 10 every other month as a treat. They eat CGD (Crested Gecko Diet) It’s a powder you mix with water and it turns thick and soupy for them to easily lap up. Has all the vitamins they need. Are you also misting her every day as well? My humidity level is never under 50%

Do your research before buying an animal,
There are CERTAIN types of baby food you can give but I stick to CGD.
Your gecko will most likely not eat in front of you. Just leave it alone and it will eat when it wants.

Make sure your temperatures and humidity are correct. Nothing higher than 80 degrees and lower than 60. Usually, my geckos eat very quickly. CGD should be offered every day, and I offer crickets to mine twice a week.

There are NO fruits or baby foods acceptable for an everyday diet of crested geckos.
