I found this neat looking guy at a show today. The person selling this cool looking little guy had no clue what it was. Im pretty sure its a Crydo but what is it? I need to find some info on it to make sure im giving it correct housing

I can't offer much help on an ID, but that's a great score, and an incredible animal. I'll be paying attention to this thread!

Are you 100% positive on this or just taking an educated guess? I just want to make sure that I dont go along thinking thats what I have and find a male for her just to realize their different species. LoL. Btw this is my first bent toe gecko, males show pretty obvious bulges in Crytos also correct?

it could also be a Cyrtodactylus species which i don't know about looking as Cyrtodactylus consobrinus twin...just kidding.
more seriously your gecko looks like the Cyrtodactylus consobrinus from peninsular Malaysia i keep and breed for a few years.

yes the bulges are obvious in consobrinus,but more elongated in shape than some gecko species with of course a "line" in between.
