  • Well Hi!

    Hello everyone!

    I had been a daily lurker and have decided to join the crested gecko forum fun! Right now I actually don't have a gecko... I'm waiting for my baby from Wisconsin to get here from Supreme Gecko to ship (it's currently way too cold). Though for now I may as well introduce myself formerly!

    My name is Bonnie, though feel free to call me anything that corresponds for I am used to it. I'm a teen/young adult (whatever you'd like to categorize me as) who just absolutely loves any type of animals. I have recently gotten into the wide span of reptiles and I already have a huge plan in my head. Though before I describe that I'll further my description of myself.

    I'm a very shy girl... Quiet beyond belief and am only really open online. I do have a boyfriend who accepts everything (shyness, anxiety, animal obsession, love for written role play) and I only have a few close friends. I'm very content being by myself - I'm an only child born and raised in Ohio. I plan on going to Bowling Green for college though that isn't set in stone yet. I want to be a marine biologist and would minor in herpetology if bowling green had the curriculum... But at that school if you study any type of biology you get to work in the reptile lab so I'm excited!

    For out of college.... Here is my big plan. I hope to obviously move out on my own. Whether it be an apartment or affordable house I don't care... All I want is a spare bedroom for a pet room. I want any kind of animal I can get my hands on and can afford to take care of. My dream is to breed both cresties and leopard geckos... And to also have as pets a sand boa, rats, a rabbit, and dogs. I'd also love to have a nice farm with horses but that would be way far in the game.

    As of now I have three hermit crabs and a dog!

    Lily:

    Petunia:

    Venus: (old picture from when I first got her.... She is down for a molt so I can't get any current pictures)

    Roxie:


    I have also owned hamsters, gerbils, and a rabbit. I miss each and every one of them to bits! RIP<3

    For the hermit crabs... If anyone is interested I'll show pictures of their tank. I made two permanent second levels with glass so their tank is a great accomplishment of mine.

    Well, that's really all I have to say! Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction!

      Thank you!! I'll surely post pictures the day I get the little one. It's a six month old, 6 gram, harley/flame cross. I'm super excited!

        Harley/flame cross? Is that like on the fence of whether it's a Harley or not?

          That is the site's photo of the little one! The breeder told me it was a cross... Believe me I was a bit confused too. So I think he meant it has potential to be a Harley. From what I see it very well could be? I'm not good with morphs yet!

            Your right, it looks like a flame now but it could develop into a harley. Cute little crestie.

              Well whatever it may turn out to be I'm already in love with the colors. I hope it turns out to be more vivid when it grows older.

                Hi and welcome to the forum! I wonder if the breeder meant the offspring was a harley/flame cross, meaning it came from from parents that were a harley and a flame? Cutie for sure!! kinda looks like my Banjo who gets almost black fired up and his dorsal turns cream from orange

                  Good point. You could ask the breeder if you want to know what they meant.

                    I'm pretty sure that's what he meant actually! I wasn't thinking I'll be honest...sorry! I can't wait to get the little guy. And as for names I am thinking Ember for a girl or Volcano for a boy.

                    And thank you for all the kind welcomes!

                      Roxy is a cutie! I'm a major animal lover, too. My house is filled with animals! ^^ I just got my first crestie in May, so I'm fairly new to reptiles, too. Adorable little crestie! I don't know if I could manage waiting for my little one to get shipped... I would want it right away! Points to you for your patience.

                        Thank you... She's my baby! Oh well congrats on your crestie too! Oh believe me I've been tempted to just grab one of the cresties at petco I see all the time but I really wanted a young one so yeah. Hopefully within the next week or two!

                          Young ones can be a bit crazy, haha. They're cute, and fun, though. I'm planning on breeding this year or the next, once I get some nicer geckos (one of mine is more pet quality, the other is much too small to be laying), so I'm going to have to get used to handling the smaller ones! Good luck c:

                            I'm aware, but I really wanted a young one so I could have more of a bond with him/her since the gecko will be following me to college and will be my buddy. I'd love to breed someday but that won't be for a few years. Good luck to you!

                            Andddd it's 3am.
