 GARGOLYE WON’T EAT FRUIT MIX

Hi,

I’ve had my gargoyle gecko for 2 months now and he won’t eat fruit mix (baby food or mashed fruit). He’s a year old and will only eat crickets. Does anyone have any ideas of how to get this guy to eat fruit mix? Thank you.

im having trouble with this still with my crested gecko, people are telling me that baby food is a big no, i still dont understand why. anyway, one thing that worked was to half dip a cricket into the fruit mix, enough to taste it but not enough to cover the cricket so that way he sees its a cricket still. he’ll go for the cricket and eat the mix by accident. another thing is to put some of the mix on your finger tip and just touch his nose, he’ll either lick it or lick it off his nose at least.
