    So my gecko hadn't eaten for 2 weeks, and suddenly she's ravenous. She had 14 crickets 2 days ago and would have eaten more but I stopped feeding her. And then today she ate 10 more, and again she only stopped because I wouldn't give her more. Is she eating too much?should I limit her? Or should I just keep feeding her until she's not hungry anymore?

    The general rule of thumb is to feed as much as they will eat in about 10-15 minutes. Usually they will get full and stop eating after a few minutes but if she is still wanting to eat let her.

    Ok thanks. If she still seems hungry after 15 minutes, which is probable, should I worry? It seems like she shouldn't be able to eat 20 crickets in a sitting, her stomach seems so tiny!

    I thought the same thing about my bearded dragon. How could he possibly fit 15 crickets in his tiny little stomach?!? When in doubt, follow the general rule of 15 mins.
