    Oh no, def. not knocking them down. I just happened to notice some previous crested breeders getting rid of their entire stock to work on leos only.

    Yeah, that seems pretty balls-y and rash, to me. My crested collection isn't going anywhere.

    Fat tails are definitely fun to watch, especially when they hunt.

    I suspect that people move from Cresteds to Leos because they made enough money in Cresties to be able to afford high-end Leos. Leo morphs can be big money, but you really have to know what you're doing, because they don't hold value for long. Another good reason someone may sell off their cresties for leos is because of the space issue--you can house leopard geckos in simple snake rack systems. They do very well in racks, and that means you can keep a LOT of leos in that space. It's just much simpler to care for a rack full of leos than it is shelves loaded down with crestie cages.

    Cresties aren't going anywhere, there are still plenty of breeders that love to work with them, but from a business perspective, they're more of a maintenance and husbandry challenge than leos are.
