About Crested Geckos
Crested Geckos originate from New Caledonia. They make great beginner pet reptiles. They are very unusual looking and have the ability to climb vertical walls due to microscopic hairs on their feet. They have the ability to jump which may startle a few people however they don’t often do it and it is fairly easy to know when they are about to do it. Crested Geckos make great alternatives for people afraid of bugs as crested geckos are fed a powder based diet which is mixed with water to make a paste.
They will eat bugs however but that is optional. Some will refuse to eat them where else some will go mad for them. Crested geckos require a minimum sized enclosure of 18Inches x 18Inches x 24Inches (LxDxH).
Crested Geckos don’t require UVB lighting however it is very beneficial. If UVB is provided it must be 2 to 7% depending on the size of the enclosure.
Crested geckos require a day temperature of 25 to 28 degrees Celsius which can drop to about 20 degrees Celsius at night. Complete setups and all the required equipment is available in store.
