Crested gecko

I went to a reptile expo today and came home with as I announced in the chat box a little crested gecko.

Even though my mother said no more pets this is what I ended up bring home, and all I had to do was say how cute they were and my mother was sucked into the crested geckos hands, telling me to go back to the first table we were at and have one put on hold.

Well we walked around a bit more making sure to hit every table with crested geckos, but ended up going back to the first table (they had good prices and nice geckos).

Another breeder let me hold an adult gecko and I was in love.

Back at the first table I was looking at the geckos trying to pick one out, I saw some nice ones but I wasn't into paying $150.00 for a gecko. I saw some priced at $70-$75 and was about to make my choice but then my mother pointed out that their was a case with three geckos. I took a look and saw an adorable little butt and asked the lady to take the container out. Well she did just that and then took the gecko out. Hyper little thing jumped right up my sleeve. And that was it.

I ended up with a little $60-- brown and beige gecko, whom I think is much prettier than the all beige ones.

Thanks to my supreme internet search skills I have determined it is a she.

I took her home and got her all set up in a 12-15 gallon retro tank (which weights a ton) stood on its side. Coco fiber as a substrate and a florescent light.

Planted with pothos and spider plant and lended a piece of drift wood against the side.

Oh and stole the lid from the bettas tank.

Pictures!!! And I need help naming her.

Thanks!


She's still settling in so more pictures will come in a week or two.

I think she is a flame morph

You must be a mind reader!!! I was debating on calling her Tiny, but I'm not sure if the other geckos will bully her for that name

I have decided on her name for now it wall be ' Grand Tiny' but with a french accent.

It may change if I think of something better.
