    Talking What else should I know before getting my Crested Gecko?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello everyone,
    I've been able to obtain an 18x18x24 enclosure and I've decided to get a crestie to stock it. I think I already have a great understanding of their care as I have a day gecko who's care is very similar minus some differences in heating/lighting and humidity, and I've already researched for several months. My main questions are is there anything that is unique to Cresties that I should be aware of before having one and also how does one go about handling them and taming them? I will be purchasing a juvenile one from Josh's frogs, unless someone can point me towards a better option for a similar price.

    Thank you!
    -Josh

    Hi Josh ~

    Often cresties are pretty "jumpy"/hyper when compared with other geckos. Covering 3 sides of your 18 x 18 x 24 with something like brown paper bags can offer more security for your new gecko.

    Here's a care sheet to check out in case you haven't seen it. Scroll beyond this care sheet for other tips.
