Crickets are moving and will attract the geckos attention, ergo the gecko will eat them straight away.

With the crested gecko diet the gecko will usually eat it at night since they are nocturnal. It is not unusal. As long as the gecko is defecating, shedding, moving around etc... You shouldn't have anything to worry about.

yep. They mostly eat at night. I've never seen mine eat. Although I don't think he's ever shed...just to add to a quick question, how often/when are they supposed to shed?

They eat their shed so in less you catch them in the act it's hard to tell.

It only takes mintues for them to get all the skin off or it can take awhile. My gargoyle gecko has been shedding all day.

Yeah they get it stuck in some places sometimes. Lewis usually gets little pieces stuck to his nails.
