  • For the love of cresteds.

    What is the craziest thing you have done to obtain that prized gecko?

    I have driven through a tornado and spent quite a long time living on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and canned peaches. Lol. What's your story? :wink:

    I just do jobs around the house and cut lawns and sell some of my animals. I also have a snake catching buisness (seasonal) which I get $1 a snake and usually get 20 calls +/- a week. But since I can't drive I have to ride my bike to the spot where I catch them and some drivers just want to run me over. 8)

        Lol. Sometimes I don't even ask my husband. I just wait for the package to arrive and explain it then. The first time I did this, the doorbell rang, I signed for the package, and brought it into the house. When he asked me what it was I opened it up and said, "Wow! How nice of so-and-so... I'll go set him up now." Nowadays, when the doorbell rings and I walk in with a package, he just raises his eyebrows and I have to pull out the old "now honey, don't be mad" line. Lol.

          Yeah thats how it is with my Mom I am like can I get a gecko and she just says "what are you trying to get there babies to look now" but when I ask her if we can go to the zoo or somthing like that she is like "why don't you just walk around your room." But overall I think she likes all the geckos and snakes and other lizards running around.

            I always wanted a crested but my mom was scared of reptiles. i took her to the local reptile shop and had her hold one to get over it. long story short within a week i had a crested. now she wants to hold it all day.

              -wash and sweep my car
              -completely clean my room and get rid of any unnessecary "junk"
              -wash our boat
              -stain the deck
              -powerwash the pier
              -and pay for all the supplies needed Nessie, my mom did however pay for Nessie.

                    Well lets see here where do I begin? For about two years straight I ate cup of noodles for almost every meal of the day and bought my self well .............nothing pretty much. I lost 10 pounds, and let my insurance lapse.Things Only changed after nearly drove my girlfriend insane with my rhac obsession (and she's not a "ewwww reptiles" , she loves herps and works at a herp & arachnid store! So that should give you an idea of my problem. When I had finally satisfied my expectations of a good breeding group I relaxed a little, now I am on my way to becoming a productive member of society again. But I've drove through hurricanes (lives in Florida) and skipped paying bills, put off friends and even let my car fall apart! But things are better now I have a very good looking breeding colony and make a little more money. So yeah you could say I have a passion for rhacs, I guess.

                        i dunno if you'd call it crazy because i cant say ive ever driven through a hurricane or tornado or been hit my lightning or anything crazy like that lol but i'm currently in the process of single handedly finished my basement so i can live down there somy mom will let me get one! she says im not allowed to have one as long as im upstairs, so ive started the long project of finishing my basement so far ive got all my walls up and all my electric work done, thats about it looks like its a long way off but im motivated by my need for a crestie!
