  • PLS HELP--Blushing or skin problem??? PIC

    I am brand spanking new to geckos. I've only had mine since the end of December. This morning, I noticed that the bottom of him, from the chin to the tail, was this bright orange-y color. On my gecko fb group I was told this is called blushing, but I wasn't able to find any real info about it online. Can anyone help me out with this? I'm worried that it could be a skin issue and I don't want to write it off as something benign if it isn't.

    Sorry pic is blurry, he's not one for posing.

    Totally normal. Not all crested geckos blush. It's an inherited trait and it's harmless. Look at this chart at the bottom left.
    3.3.0 Correlophus ciliatus (crested geckos)
