  • New crestie hidding :(

    So I bought a crestie at the pet shop yesterday ( yeah I know bad me for buying at a petshop ... ) she was fine when she arrived but a couple hours later she started jumping and running around like crazy and now she's been hiding under a decor and I can't see if she still alive or not because this decor is hard to move since it's under vines :/ ... is it normal behaviour?

    Very normal. Don’t worry they need time to adjust

      She probably just needs time to adjust to the new enclosure.

        Totally normal. It takes geckos weeks to adjust to their new surroundings. They are a prey species and any change freaks them out. Avoid handling your gecko for at least two weeks -- just feed and clean and otherwise leave it alone. Eventually it will figure out that you are not a threat and will start coming out to watch you.
