  • I hatched out my first eggs ever!

    I hatched 2 beautiful crested eggs on the 25th of july! They were from my red pair. That pair has produced 5 clutches for me since may 17th. Im gonna seperate the female from the male after another clutch. She has been an awesome breeder. The hatchlings are nice and heatlhy. They look like their parents except they go from red like their parents to a tan and gray. They are awesome little geckos. It took about 68 days of incubation. They are feeding on baby food and small dusted crickets. I saw one of them eat their first cricket a few days ago. I just wanted to say I Love crested geckos so much! I have leos and thoguht that they were cool but after purchasing a few cresteds, I have a new favorite gecko. I think cresteds are great geckos for all levels of experience. They are by far the best gecko I've worked with and easy my choice for the best beginer lizard. They are so calm and handleable and easy to care for. I love Rhacodactylus so much. I hope to breed Aurics or Saras soon!


    Thanks all,

    Also, how do you add pictures?

                    yeaa ive always been a big fan of the naturalistic enclosures myself. im not a papertowel man, but i guess its a lot easier to manage and check for poopy and such lol id do it for babies but never for breeders or my perminent geckos i wouldnt be selling or anything like that

                        yeaa see ive never really understood how people manage that. how do you get it to decompose with a substrate like bed a beast or other ones like jungle mix and things like that as a substrate?
