    Who's to decide what's "cool"? It's a pretty subjective term. I agree that there are a whole lot of other species that deserve more attention than what they get, but just because crested geckos or leopard geckos are now very common doesn't make them any less "cool" than they were when they were new to the hobby and were selling for large sums of money. Rarity doesn't necessarily translate directly to "cool" in my opinion.

    I keep somewhere between 15 - 20 different species of geckos (which reminds me I have about 4 or 5 species I have to get added to my website if I can ever find the time), and I still find my crested geckos some of the more attractive and interesting geckos I keep... not to mention that they primarily "pay the gecko bills" around here. I'll always keep a place for crested geckos in my collection.

    Then why are you on a crested forum if you dislike them so much?

    I think you're on the tip of an interesting subject that should be started in a new thread Gary .

    If you look up his history on this site, you see he's (Jeff aka SGVReptiles) been around for a long time. Many of us have moved on from "Crested-centered" breeding projects to more diverse collections. In any case, you'd be surprised how many members here aren't crested lovers...

    I'm glad for the comments on the agricolae. He is very interesting. I also agree
    that an interest in certain species is very subjective. I love the Crested Geckos and I
    have Leos whom I love too, along with Reed Frogs, a scorpion, and one tarantula.
    I also have a small colony of male Crested Geckos that have lived together for 3 years. Along with that is a group of females that live together. There is something
    about the enjoyment of watching them that I haven't gotten tired of, and don't think
    I will.
    For me, the Cresteds are truly a species I enjoy, and I realize others branch out
    to other species, etc. The Agricolae is branching out for me <g>. I love all animals,
    and once a reptile nut, always a reptile nut (at least in my case).
    Thanks again for the comments, and thanks again Gary. melissa n.

    ....I had no idea there were people on this forum who didn't like Crested Geckos,
    but I guess there is something for everyone. I can see too how people can get
    into other species and continue their search and interest. Quite a challenge, I think.
