Each Pangea CGD is created using an irresistibly delicious combination of fruits that frugivorous geckos can’t resist – including natural dried fruits, whey protein isolate, eggs, bee pollen, algaes and probiotics.

Watermelon

Watermelons are nutritious and easy-to-digest fruits that you should include as part of the diet for your crested gecko. Watermelons offer plenty of hydration, no fat content and low quantities of simple sugars (fructose) which are digested more readily than complex sugars like sucrose.

Apples are packed with vitamin C and contain relatively little oxalic acid; furthermore, they’re an excellent source of the amino acids citrulline and lycopene that support metabolism and immune function.

Like with all fruits, eating too much watermelon may cause your crested gecko to develop an insatiable sweet tooth and refuse other foods. To combat this tendency, alternate watermelons with other fruits and only offer small servings on a weekly basis. In addition, washing all produce before providing it to your crested gecko will ensure they do not come in contact with harmful pesticides or bacteria, particularly watermelons which may be chewed up and swallowed directly by their predator.

Banana

Formerly known as Banana Papaya, this food is an all-time gecko favorite and will always generate an enthusiastic feeding response. Containing over 50% real banana and papaya fruit with no seeds or cereal mixes added, as well as protein from whey isolate and egg whites for protein enhancement, it is Rainforest Alliance Certified to support sustainable agriculture practices.

Pangea’s crested gecko food products have quickly become the gold standard. Available in six formulations and using an extensive selection of ingredients, these dietary powders offer high nutritional content at a more reasonable cost than Repashy alternatives. Geckos love Pangea powders!

Open bags remain fresh for six months at room temperature or 12 months when stored in the fridge, depending on size; either an eight-ounce or four-pound bag are ideal for single cresties; larger groups might benefit more from four pounders which save money per ounce compared to their smaller counterparts. Insect feed can also be mixed in to provide your gecko with an optimal diet.

Fig

Pangea’s Banana Papaya food has quickly become one of their best-selling formulas since it first hit shelves in 2013. Like all Pangea formulas, it was developed and tested at their company by their crested geckos to replicate an insect-based diet and promote an enthusiastic feeding response.

Its primary ingredients include North American farm-raised crickets and black soldier fly larvae as the source of protein, along with bananas and apricots to provide an appealing taste and boost egg production throughout breeding season. Finally, there’s plenty of fat for supporting egg production during breeding.

Pangea Fig & Insects is one of Pangea’s six complete gecko diets designed to prevent any potential oxalic acid issues from using too much banana powder as its base fruit, making for easier mixing. Geckos seem to appreciate it!

Fruit Mix

Pangea offers a fruit mix that provides crested geckos with their favorite treats without seeds, cereal mixes or high oxalate fruit; making this formula ideal for all life stages of crested geckos as well as frugivorous reptiles such as new caledonian and day geckos. Their fig version may even attract cresteds who don’t care for bananas!

Pangea uses various sources of protein for their MRP’s, with all formulas containing at least 15 percent crude protein. They use different levels of whey and egg proteins in each formula; additionally, mealworm, cricket or black soldier fly larvae may be added in the case of breeding crested geckos.

Pangea MRP’s are slightly more costly than Repashy products but many geckos prefer them, making their additional cost well worth it for some keepers. Once opened they have an approximate six month shelf life; refrigeration can extend that further.
