    Question New Gecko Owner Q&A feel free to ask your own questions if one has not been asked.

    I thought it would be nice to have a running Q&A.

    1. I seem to be fighting a losing battle with temp, he always feels cold when I bring him out, it's 70-72 F in the house and I have a heatpad stuck to the outside of the tank on one side, I've only seen him close to the heat pad once but he still feels cold when I bring him out to handle. Should I get a lamp with a little heat to it for daylight hours? I know I need more green, I'm working on it.

    Your gecko's a cutie! It doesn’t sound like you need supplemental heat- crested geckos are fine at your room temps (65-80deg).

    It will always feel cool to your hand because they’re cold blooded- your gecko will be the same temp as your table or chairs, not your 80-90deg hand
