    Do gargoyle geckos get bigger than crested geckos? If so how much bigger? And do chahouas get bigger than gargoyles and how much bigger?

    Yes to both questions, but I couldn't give you average weights, there's such a wide variation!

    Google images for each, and you'll be able to tell by photos of people holding them, approximately how big they get.
    TAD "Tiny Ancient Dinosaur" (Crestie), Hidey (Garg), O.G. "Office Gecko" (Bauer's Chameleon gecko), TBD "Tiny Badass Dragon" (Western Bearded Anole), 3.1.0
    Rody Jane (cattledog/stinkwad mix), Dixie Moonpie (rattledog) George P-Dog (lab/Great Pyr) 1.2.0, Ringer (barn cat) 1.0.0

      Cresties average adult weight is about 55g. Gags average weight is about 70g maybe. I don’t know anything about chewies, but I’m pretty sure they get up to the 100s.

        Hi Chahouas are about 50-60g as an average but have heard some larger ones to be as big as 90g but I think that's much less usual.
        Their locale can determine their weight too.
        Usually gargoyles are bigger than cresties but there can be exceptions to this too. Gargoyle s are more like a lump to handle compared to the majority of cresties. Gargoyle s are also heavy on their feet, where Crestie seem more agile as they move about. The parent geckos will give you a good predictor of likely size if diet maintained & healthy.
