thank you both for the advice.. i'm still none the wiser on the choice of gecko, mind pahaha.
to be honest i don't feel there would ever be a wrong choice in whichever i go for. i love the crestie for their fascinating looks and history- it really just comes down to potentially being heart broken if he or she were to ever become frog butted lol. gargs are equally fascinating to look at and i like that they are not as much of a popular choice compared to cresties, as well as the tail regen bonus of course.
bahh, maybe i will own both eventually? ^-^
