Since most keepers consider regular feeding to be a sign of good health, it is disconcerting when a gecko doesn’t eat. Most of the time, a gecko does not eat well due to illness, stress or life cycle events.

Recent study on Tokay Geckos and Salmonella

There was a recent study posted on Scientific American’s 60-Second Science blog titled Of Pathogens and Pets: Tokay Gecko Harbors 10 Types of Salmonella. This article explains research that has been conducted with 150 tokay geckos, finding that 60% tested positive for carrying Salmonella.

Blaptica dubia Care & Compared to Other Roaches

Blaptica dubia is one of the fastest growing trends when it comes to feeding your exotic pets. The babies are the perfect size for any small pet, from baby geckos, baby bearded dragons to just small tarantulas. As adults they are rather big compared to crickets so it takes fewer Blaptica dubia to fill up your pet, which in turn saves you money! Being a slow moving roach they allow pets that are not up for the chase an easy meal, but they also move enough to attract the feistiest of predators.
