Pangea Breeding Formula is a nutritionally complete crested gecko diet formulated for adult geckos that are active breeders. During breeding, female crested geckos utilize a lot of calcium and fat reserves to produce eggs, and males often lose interest in food and focus solely on breeding. This formula has increased fat content (mostly from insects) in comparison to the other diets by Pangea to help replenish the depleted fat reserves.
Another key feature of Pangea Breeding Formula (PBF) is the combination of proteins. The insect meal of this crested gecko diet is made up of crickets and black soldier fly larvae. The black soldier fly larvae are naturally balanced in calcium to phosphorus ratio, and aids in restoring calcium reserves. Accompanying the insect meal is Whey, a traditionally palatable protein and quickly digestible source for Crested Geckos along with Micellar Casein as a slow release protein that is packed with amino acids in comparison to other protein sources.
Pangea Breeding Formula was designed to address the effects that breeding crested geckos experience but can also be great to feed to all stages of life from a hatchling, juvenile, and adult. PBF offers four protein sources that have the possibility of aiding hatchlings and juveniles in growth rates.
Feeding Pangea Breeding Formula
PBF should be fed in a lesser amount and more routinely than any other available diet. The diet should be thick like ketchup. Mix 1 part powder to 2.5 parts water. I recommend feeding insects in place of Pangea Breeder Formula 1-2 times a week to keep your geckos mentally stimulated and physically active.

Pangea Breeder Formula is a thicker mix and is usually eaten best when mixed thick like ketchup. Mix 1 part powder to 2 & 1/2 parts water Some geckos prefer thick and some like it runnier.
- As a complete diet offer fresh food every day and remove uneaten food after 24 hours.
- Generally speaking, most geckos are not going to clean their bowl every time as they may with the lower fat content formulas.
- Refrigerate after opening. Make sure to remove all air from the bag and properly seal to eliminate exposure to oxygen.
- Due to fat content, this formula has a lower shelf life with an expiration of 1 year.
