    Default Meet Diego:)

    This is Diego I rescued him from someone that did not have a CLUE how to care for him. He is pretty much a crestless Crestie, but he is the SWEETEST thing and LOVES to be held.717.jpg741.jpg744.jpg

    My crestless crestie Spook is one of my favorites. He's not one for sitting still, but I still love him a lot.




    He's very pretty, but he has no crests. He's the only one I have that is purely a pet.

    My girl Choco can be a bit cranky if you catch her at the wrong time. She has pretty poor head structure, but she's fires up really dark and was great for one of my breeding projects. She's pretty much lacking in crests on the right side of her head too. I was told that was most likely an injury from a previous breeding (I got her as an adult). I love her even if she is cranky and has poor structure.

    Tobin!!!! My third gecko, and the first one I got since I got back into the hobby after a few years off. He came from Ashley(Grublet) and he's the best gecko to handle that I own.

    I was looking at this gal, wondering why such a gorgeous lady was pet-quality, and then I scrolled down and saw her poor leg. She is still beautiful.

    Oops, double post! Sorry!

    On a side note, Styx: do the geckos get to eat your prop-fruit after their photo shoot?

    Her leg is fine, her foot is just curled under holding onto the cherry stem. She's pet-only because she's a mutt gecko and doesn't breed true in any sense of the word. She produces brown buckskins and the like, so I definitely would never breed her again.

    lol, I ate that fruit! Sometimes though, I do feed it to them. ;3

    When we first moved to where we live now (3 years ago), one of the first things we did was went to Petco and checked out their crested geckos. There was a sub-adult male there that Kyle wanted to buy, and I said no. For three months we looked at that gecko, Kyle wanting to get him, and me not. Finally one day I caved and said we could get him. That would be Arcas. He came with a bad eye, and we found out that just a few days before I let Kyle get him, a worker had taken him out to show someone and he dropped his tail.

    I do love him now, and I still haven't seen many geckos that look like him. He's a permanent resident here, regardless if we ever use him for breeding again or not.



    And oh by the way, he produced Mushu, who produced Alice. So yes, it's a good thing I finally decided he was awesome.
