 Roaches?

I want to vary my geckos diet. I was wondering if I could feed them roaches?

 Roaches?

Yes, yes you can. Roaches are one of the best food sources out there for lizards. Try the small flightless kinds, such as Dischoid or lobster roaches. Don’t give them something bigger than the width between the eyes, as it can give stomach upset and constipation - as well as accidental choking in younger geckos.

Good foods to switch between are silkworms, roaches, crix, mealies, and the occasional locust if you can find one. Fattyworms include waxworms and butterworms. Superworms can be also be fatty if fed too often, but are okay to feed once in a while, one at a time. Personally, I gave up on using supers due to the obesity it led my goldie into. He loved them, though.
