Now Absinthe hasn't even looked at the crickets I'm offering! What happened? Because I bought him off of the infamous craigslist he wasn't the best cared for Gecko. Part of his lack of care was not being fed for a week and a half! So for a week after I brought him home he would happily eat 2-3 crickets from hand every day. Now that he's been getting plump his appetite has been slowing down and I need to do some thinking about how to get him back on track in a much more humane way than having a person starve him over a week.

1) I could do the reverse and have him free feed on bugs all day and start training with fruit.
2) I could remove the fruit mix at night and wait to feed crickets in the morning before his first fruit meal.
