Thread: Thinking about a gargoyle.....

    Default Thinking about a gargoyle.....

    I just moved my crestie out of a 12x12x18 and into a 18x18x24. Now I have a empty cage and was thinking about getting a baby garg. I have done tons of research and have even handled one at a expo. I was wondering if you have any tips on them that only experienced owners would know. When I went to the expo I mentioned before there was only one garg and it didnít look too healthy. I do not live near any pet shops who have gargs either and I was wondering if there are any good sites (including Pangea). If I do get one online is it risky? It sorta scares me. Thank you!

    i just got one. i love her. She is very tame. I used to raise Cresteds and the gargoyle is so much calmer and tamer. ( it is an individual thing) there are some good breeders online. i got mine from a reputable breeder. if you need the name, pm me, i'll give it to you. BUT your gecko would need a bigger enclosure eventually. The 18x18x24 is the smallest i would put an adult into. Same care as a crested.

    I just got one literally like 2 days ago and I already love her. I think she will be named Luna, I don't have much experience yet, but will keep an eye on your post for other advice people might have.

    Thatís a good size for a juvenile, but when they are adults, an 18x18x24 is the minimum. They tend to be pickier from my experience and from what Iíve heard from other keepers. Some wonít take live food, so you shouldnít be worried if yours doesnít. Every garg that Iíve seen is very mellow and calm, mine has never tried to bite. Iím not sure on any online breeders, but make sure you do your research on how reputable they are and all that.
