Talking Tiny will eat you...

New pictures of my monster of a crested gecko, Tiny. If you haven't already read my post entitled 'Crested Gecko' go read it so you'll know more about her.

Here the pictures

Sitting on my hand. I have small-ish hands so you can kind of gauge her size.


I will eat you


Sitting on a pothos leaf


Again


I got a night glo bulb so I could see her with out disturbing her with a normal light. It makes the plants red and her glow.


Her vivarium. I made a feeding platform and the bowl under her has a few mealworms. So far she has no interest in them.

She's very cute . When my Crested was a baby, he had no interest at all in insects. But oddly enough, as he grew older he started liking them. Now he'll eat pretty much anything I hand him (he fails at hunting on his own, haha--after only one try he'll get discouraged and give up).

Hehe, your crested would die in the wild :p

You will want to add more cover, and cover 3 sides with something for more hiding spots and make it less stressed. She is a cutie. You could call her Tiny G.

Yes. I know she needs more cover. I have been trying to get some bamboo but no one seems to sell any around her.

My Crested has eaten all of the following: crickets, wingless fruit flies, waxworms, mealworms, silkworms, and phoenix worms. But most of them are treats that I don't give him very often.

Thanks

My PetSmart here has 2 adult females, but they are $199.99 so they are going to be there for a while.

Some crazy prices on crested geckos.

I saw some at the expo for almost $300.00 but I didn't get a good look at the, as everyone was crowding around them and I was busy trying to pick one out for my self.

That's what Tiny did, exept she went up my sleeve. I just had to have her, and luckily my mom told me to pick one out.

Their feet are so adorable and their skin is so soft!

Video of Tiny getting a drink off the sides of the tank. Isn't her little tongue just adorable?
