    Default Zoltan, the black-eyed crestie

    I posted a thread about buying a new crestie few days ago >here< but I guess that as I'll post a lot of pics of him in future I will better do it here.

    Since I had little accident with spraying bottle and needed to change the paper towels in his bin I taked the chance to handle him for few minutes and taked some pics! He again was soo calm, walking around and checking everything. He also eats his Repashy like there is no tomorrow so I guess he acclimates well to new home.

    Here are pics of Zoltan, that turned out really professional without me trying for it, haha!

    All those pictures look fabulous! You should try to get a macro pic of his eye(s) one day!
    I personally love to do macro pictures, here's one of my eye shots I did a while back Name:  taddapp1484949788900.jpg

    Thank you! And woah, nice picture of the eye! I will try someday for sure, but my camera isn't the best for macro, so I don't know if it will turn out good

    Sure! I'll love him even if his eyes will turn out to be as bright as regular ones! But when he had them solid black he looked soo cool and cute that I hope they will return, haha! It's funny that when they were all black they had a purple tint to them, but when they started to get birghter now they are more blueish.

    He looks great! And thank you for sharing your experience with us, it helps us all learn.

    I am curious though...how do you tell if a gecko has the start of MBD if they don't have their tail?

    I would like to know the answer too... As for sharing the story it's not something I am proud of, but I feel it's important to show that even more experienced reptile owners can do stupid mistakes.

    In our case it was totally my fault, like I mentioned earlier we had crazy time in our life and did not checked on the reptiles as we should. At the same time we had problems with buying Pangea/Repashy so for a few weeks both our cresties were eating insects and some fruit "shakes" that I mixed for them... But stupid me forgot that without cgd I should add supplements every time and not only once in a while Of course when I noticed the tails getting wavy (it was near the time we finally got new Repashy for them and they were eating it for a few days) I started supplementing them with calcium asap, even now I add some to their food.



    Some of you asked about his eyes - no, they are no longer getting brighter, I even think that they darkened again! I will try to do some macro pics again to show you all how they look at the moment.

    Get a macro lense! Depending on the camera they are fairly cheap

    Unfortunately while I really like our camera (Konica Minolta DiMage A200) it's an older one and I can't really find any lenses for it for sale. And the ones I found are like 10x more expensive than what we payed for the camera... so yeah, I'll need to try without it, unless someday I will find lense that will be cheap enough for it to be rational.
