    Do gargoyles need as much foliage as cresties?

    I would say yes. Just my opinion. I don't really see why they would need less or more open space or foliage as a Crested. Some geckos may be shy and need you to go that "extra yard" for them to feel secure, safe, and hidden. I personally just load it with as much as I can, keeping in mind they need some open space to move around.
    Just my thoughts though!

    I'd say they need as much cover as cresties, but that doesn't necessarily translate into plants. gargs are heavier than cresties, so they much prefer thicker branches/vines and I know mine certainly loves her cork rounds/hollow logs. Of course plant cover is still needed, but since they're heavier, a lot of plants get squished under their weight so they don't climb on them much.

    I agree that coverage doesn't always translate to foliage. My geckos tend to prefer hiding in their cork rounds or coconut hides vs. any foliage I have in the cage.
