Yet another great Petco crestie. Im fairly certain that PETCO gets all their cresteds from Allen Repashy, which would make it Repashy stock.

Actually, they get cresteds from another major breeder as well.

great find! Looks to be a female too.

It is a female. I was pretty sure it was a dalmation just making sure I cant remember all the names for cresties I am just now really getting into them but she is a beautiful crestie and weighs 34grams so not a bad deal for 49.95

Looks like she has a little dalmation in her.

if its mine youre talking about, yea, shes got a slight hint of dalmation spotting, dont think it would really show in the offspring unless i paired her up with another dalmation.

Man... Just by shopping at petco for cresteds you can be saving so much comparded to if you buy from normal breeders... Hopefully my petsmart has some nice animals :lol:

Nice looking female Mike.

As soon as I get paid again i am going to go shopping at my local petcos and petsmarts again and see what I can find this time!

Do PETCO's usually havegood crestie stalk? Because I think they have some nice ones around here but I didn't even want to look at them if they were in poor health.

Some of the petcos take care of their animals just because they have someone that works there that knows something about reptiles and there are others that dont just because no one know about reptiles, there are 4 petcos near me and i have been to all of them and there is 2 that no one knows jack about reptiles. But if the crestie is in bad health see if you can get a discount and nurse it back to health.

yea i was just at my petsmart earlier and their gettin one crested from sandfire dragon ranch this week so i have to make sure i check back before i drop to much money at the ny show this weekend :D

Thats what I would do you can get some good cresteds if you are lucky. I am going to start searching petsmart and petcos and buying up all their females.

I just bought a creastie from petco he is a little skinny he has gained 5g since I got him.

I have never seen a crestie at any of my Petco's or Petsmart. I wonder why some carry them and others don't. I live in Colorado. I wonder if weather would have anything to do with it?? Beautiful find, though.

One reason for this is because they are more exspensive up further from the coast and, if they get loose or die then Petco, or Petsmart are out quite a bit of money.That is what my Petco told me when I asked when they would get more creasties in.
