    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

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

    Excellent photos! He is beautiful! And so nice that he is so tame already. You will have a great time with him, and I look forward to more stories!

    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.

    Thank you! And yes, I'm soo glad that he is such a cute pie! Especially as all my previous cresties were scaredy cats that jumped like crazy. His older, adopted brother that we got last summer is so insane compared to him! But I hope that with Zoltan I will get more experience with handling geckos and will be able to get the other male to calm a little too.

    This is pretty cool! I wonder if it's anything similar to the phantom trait that gargoyles have (their eyes turn black around 2 years old) Whether a fluke or not, it looks great contrasting with his yellow XD And congrats on the feature!
