Crested Geckos for sale – Crested Gecko Substrate
Crested geckos spend most of their time above ground so a variety of substrates can be used. For simple substrate, a reptile carpet is attractive and easily cleaned. For a more naturalistic look, a peat-moss-based soil mix that doesn’t contain perlite will work well. Coir (coconut fiber pulp now sold in reptile stores as compressed bricks) mixed 50 percent with soil is a good choice for growing live plants. Paper towels are often used by breeders as they are not aesthetically pleasing but are very clean and easy to care for.
Crested Gecko Food
We recommend Pangea and Repashe’ powdered crested gecko diet marketed as Repashy Superfoods “Crested Gecko” Diet and
Pangea Crested gecko diet with our without insects, and has played a key role in making these among the most popular pet geckos for sale, because it excludes the need to feed them live insects. Crested geckos thrive when fed these diets exclusively and also can be supplemented weekly with additonal protein in the form of crickets dusted with calcium and vionate vitamin and mineral mixtures, which has been tested with thousands of geckos for more than 10 years. The powdered diets are mixed with two parts water and offered in shallow dishes three times a week as much as these geckos will eat at a feeding. The diet is allowed to remain 24 to 36 hours before removal as after 36 hours it can spoil.
Crested Gecko Housing and Crested Gecko Habitat Setup
Before purchasing your new baby crested gecko for sale online, or buying a pair of crested geckos for sale, you need to properly setup your crested gecko terrarium or crested gecko habitat. Baby crested geckos are best housed in large plastic terrariums or in standard (20-inch) 10-gallon reptile tanks with a screen top. An adult crested gecko should be housed in a 20-gallon tank with a screen top. Larger tanks will allow for better displays. In areas with moderate to high relative humidity, crested geckos will fare well in screen cages. These tanks have the advantage of being light and easy to clean. You can keep one male and several female crested geckos together. Male crested geckos may fight, particularly when in the company of females, and should not be kept together.
Crested Gecko Water and Humidity
Having proper water in your new crested geckos habitat so that it is easily accessible is key. Water should always be available for crested geckos in a shallow water dish. These geckos also require a relative humidity of at least 50 percent and preferably 70 percent. In dry areas, the tanks should be lightly misted nightly or a cool air humidifier placed in the room. Inexpensive hygrometers (relative humidity gauges) for use with reptiles are now readily available in the pet trade. When considering purchasing habitat decor for your new crested geckos for sale include a water dish that is both feasible and cleanable as it is “cool looking”.

A thermometer is essential for accurate temperature measurements. Consider getting your habitat temperatures on pointed before bring your new baby crested geckos for sale online home.

In most areas, this temperature range will be reached during the warm months of the year without additional heat. In summer, place crested geckos in a cool room if the temperature exceeds 87 degrees. During the winter crested geckos will tolerate night drops into the 60s.
Crested Gecko Handling and Temperament
New baby crested geckos that just arrived should not be handled, but first allowed to settle in for three to four weeks to let them adjust to their new habitat and to make sure they are eating as they should. When you start handling your crested gecko, make handling sessions short, no more than five minutes at a time and than allow the gecko back into it’s habitat or crested gecko terrarium. Baby crested geckos for sale tend to be flighty and can be injured in the course of handling. For this reason, you should wait until they are at least 3 inches SVL before handling. Crested geckos seldom bite and when they do it is of little consequence. A quick nip and let go.
Crested Gecko Tails
In nature, crested geckos will usually lose their tails and end up with a tiny pointed tail nub. It is completely natural and normal. “Taillessness” is a normal condition for adults crested geckos. In captivity, hobbyists like their crested geckos with tails, but this requires keeping animals individually and pampered to prevent tail loss.
Crested geckos, also known as eyelash geckos, were thought to be extinct until 1994 when several relatively large, thriving populations were found on the islands of New Caledonia.
