(nom = eat) :main_laugh:

Anyways, lol..I got to thinking yesterday (and I know there's got to be a post on here somewhere about it, but I didn't really see anything) and I was wondering if anyone knows exactly what kind of bugs wild geckos eat? To me it'd be interesting to know.

insects, small mammals and pretty much anything they can fit into their mouths.
for specifics you can check which insects live in dry, rocky grasslands in pakistan, northern india and southern afghanistan.

Most animals in the wild, leopard geckos included, are opportunistic eaters. They know instinctively that food is not always available but is seasonally dependent. Some animals herd and travel for food and water. So they eat what they can when they can. We spoil them with a steady supply of all kinds of yummy noms at their beck and call :)

Well, we do know that meal worms and crickets are not a natural diet for leopard geckos. I suppose we could Google 'insects indigenous to the Hindu Kush and Zagros Mountains' of the Middle East.

One could also do a little academic leg work and see if any universities have done any collecting in the good name of formalin. From there, one would see if anyone has done a gut analysis, which is fairly common when graduate students or professors do life history studies.
