I have been in love with reptiles ever since I lived in in Sierra Leone with my parents at the age of 3. In my teens I finally convinced my mother that keeping a small gecko was really no different to keeping gold fish. I quickly added slightly larger lizards, then got a little snake and eventually a large lizard (green iguana) and large snake (Boa constrictor).

Of all reptiles, geckos have a special place in my heart. Crested geckos are particularly great as they are such good geckos for beginners. I vividly remember the first time I bread geckos (day geckos) and the exitement that gave me. Cresties are easy to breed and if you are as excitable as I am, breeding them will give you a kick as well.

Keeping reptiles is a never ending learning process and if you have any experience that you wish to share, please do so via the contact form or the blog page. I promise to publish any constructive comments.

    that they eat the same food I assume you mean ckricets and mealworms. You might do a bit more research on the diet of the crested gecko. They make special diets specifically for crested. It includes fruits. I don’t believe that they would fight so that is a plus. Just consider the risks and decide if it is worth it. Otherwise you could get a second enclosure. The choice is yours.

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, there are some very good crested gecko diets out there, for example Repashy. You can even get that on Amazon. One of the great things about crested geckos compared with other reptiles is that it is quite easy to get food for them. Even the occasional banana baby puree will do! I really think that you should feed live food as well on a regular basis as it adds some excitement and other nutrients and roughage to your crested geckos diet! I have not heard of any fights between males and females – but you do want to avoid keeping more than one male in a cage, unless you have a very large crested gecko cage!

        They are my favorite species of gecko. They are very social and tame down so easily. They are a bit skitish at first but the never show any sign of aggression. They are available in so many different phases; spotted, barred, speckled and patternless.There is so much that can still be done to line breed them for color or amount of spots.In my opinion, a spotted Trachy is the most beautiful Rhac of all time.

    I realy want to buy a gecko, would you recomend a crested gecko as a first? ps, I’m a kid

    • Crested Geckos says:

      Hi there. There are a number of reptiles that are great for beginners and the crested gecko is certainly among them. They are robust, don’t need too much space and are easy to feed, as you don’t always have to have live food at home. Also, there aren’t too many lizards that you can handle, but cresties are quite calm and easy to handle.
