    Hello! My name is Mariah, I'm 20 years old, and my lil buddy is named Roku. He is almost a year old now, and I love him to death. If you want to see more pictures check out my album!

    I'm getting interested in these crested geckos as well, but I know they arn't meant to be handled as much since they are faster...I like to take out my pets from their cages a lot and hold them. I'd be scared that I'd lose him...I'd love to see your pets too! add me as a friend and lets share stories!

    Crested geckos in my opinion can be handled as much as a bearded dragon once an adult. Babies can't be handled as much but an adult crestie with a good temperament can hang out calmly for a long time! I definitely have to say bearded dragons are awesome lizards even though I've never owned one. Im mainly a gecko person

      I might have to get one in the future, but I'm pretty hung up on my sweet bearded dragons. Are they as easy to care for as breadies?

        They are just as easy as beardies. You don't need any heat lamps etc as they do fine at room temperature. (70s) They eat powdered food that contain all the nutrients they need that you mix with water, its basically a gecko smoothie. Than misting in the morning and evening for humidity and for them to drink. The also only need a small tank, a 12x12x18 is just fine for an adult.

          They are the easiest of reptiles to care for and even youngsters can be quite docile and accept handling!

                Thats very true. People say, I'll just get one and thats it but within a year you see them do an update thread and they've got like 20.

                    Adult females can be. You'll just need a bigger tank and monitor them for bullying and that everyone is getting enough to eat.
