  • Crested Gecko with smaller eyes

    Hello! I recently purchased a breeder crested gecko who appeared perfectly normal in photos, but upon receiving her, I noticed that both of her eyes, though the same size, are slightly smaller than the average crested gecko eyes. Not crazy small but smaller than most I've seen. I know there's a lot of variance here, as I've seen some crests with HUGE eyes that make normal eyes look small. But I was just wondering if this is considered a deformity, or a reason not to breed her. She doesn't seem to have any vision troubles, just the aesthetic difference. Any insight would be great. Thanks so much!

    Sounds like she might be dehydrated, their eyes tend to sink in and appear smaller when they are
