  • First crested gecko

    I'm getting my first crested gecko on Saturday from the N. VA show. Are there any tips you can give about what to expect?

    Edit: Got him!

    Be very careful when handling it, if you handle it at all. Some cresties are very jumpy, others not so much, but at shows and places where there's lots of strange people and sounds and smells, it puts all the animals on edge and they can be prone to extra-flighty behavior. When I picked up my first crestie (I'd selected it from a breeder's site, so I knew in advance what I was getting), I didn't take her out of her container at all until I got home where it was much less stressful for both of us.

        Haha, you're welcome - and congrats! That's very exciting. You'll have to post pics when you can.
        I'm attending a large reptile show in my area on Saturday as well, but I'm going to try and be good and not bring anything home with me...but seeing as I already have a setup ready that would suit any number of geckos, it's going to be very hard not to.

            Definitely - if you have a list of vendors who'll be at the show, you can always look them up and see which one is an authorized Repashy dealer. I've never been to a show large or small that didn't have at least one vendor who sold it.
