Sorry it's been so long without an update. We moved to a new state a couple months ago, and somehow didn't have a single tail drop! Hopefully we'll be back to more regular updates soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Got some updated pictures of Sig yesterday. Not the best lighting, nor completely fired up, but it's been quite a while since we showed him off. ... See MoreSee Less
We paired our first two geckos for this season. This is Mal and Stelio. Mal is the female at a sturdy 49 grams. She's a local purchase, so no lineage on her. Stelio is weighing in at 45 grams. He was a Pangea production. We're hoping the gorgeous big head and nice structure on Stelio carries through with plenty of spots on a pale background. ... See MoreSee Less

Timeline PhotosRecent floods of queries on crested gecko groups have me a touch frustrated.
"So it's getting up to liiiiike 96 degrees in my house. Help how do I keep my gecko cool? My budget is $10."
There are some stopgap measures you can take to keep critters cool, like a frozen water bottle in or on the enclosure, but their efficacy may not be enough to keep your animal safe, and they have to be monitored regularly.
If you don't have control over the temps in your home (ie, maybe you're a young'un living with parents and they don't like to run the AC a lot, or maybe you don't have air conditioning to begin with), a crested gecko, along with a surprising number of other temperature-sensitive species, is really not a good choice in pet for you.
Please do not be selfish when choosing a pet. They're cute as the dickens (I am told dickens are incredibly cute but I'm speaking from secondhand info), but crested geckos can stress out and die if their enclosure temps kick into and stay in the upper 80s (that's upper 20s/low 30s for you sensible Celcius-users).
Get your temps, enclosure, food, care information etc. situated before you bring the critter home so you aren't making last-minute panic-posts in groups 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
