Geckos are carnivorous lizards found usually in warm climate zones in the world. Geckos are mostly small, nocturnal reptiles with soft, stout bodies, large heads, and well-developed limbs. These are highly adaptable creatures and can adapt to habitats spanning jungles to deserts.


Geckos are spread across 6 families with around 1000 species of wild lizards. Geckos are insectivores and prefer a diet of crickets, mealworms, waxworms, earthworms, moths, grasshoppers, and fruit flies. Certain species of geckos also cherish eating fruits in addition to insects. The exact diet for geckos depends upon the species, age, activity, and energy level of your gecko.


Most geckos love eating live insects however dried mealworms, and specially crafted dried insect mixes can be a good option for diversifying the diet of your gecko. Skinks resemble the class of lizards but do not have necks and short legs. Most species of skinks have long, tapering tails that they can shed if predators grab onto them.


Garden skinks feed on larger invertebrates including crickets, moths, slaters, earthworms, flies, grubs, and caterpillars. A preferred diet for skinks also includes grasshoppers, roaches, earwigs, small spiders, and beetles. Certain species of skinks can also feed on leafy greens, carrots, peas, berries, canned foods, and insect mixes in captivity.
