    Hello, everyone. I was wondering what exactly constitutes as a deep cleaning for a crested gecko enclosure, and how often you need to do it. Also, aside from spot cleaning of course, does their exist a “regular clean” that you do more frequently than a deep clean? I ask these questions because...

    Hi! I am the proud (new) owner of 5 crested geckos. I want to be the very best owner (like no one ever was) and am looking for excited owners to share their wisdom. Latest- my frog butt, who just recently had eggs (right before we got her- one of them appears to be a dud), is now hard core...

    Hi Guys, I purchased a baby Crested Gecko from my local reptile pet shop (i know please don't hate me) around a month and a half ago. I cannot tell the gender of it yet but as default i always refer to it as a male. Basically, for the first few weeks of me owning him it was a dream. He would...

    I've found some sources that say oak wood is not safe, and others that say if you treat it properly it is fine. I'm wondering if there's a consensus on whether or not oak wood is safe for use in a crested gecko viv? thx

    Hello I have been doing research into keeping crested geckos for several months because I took an interest into keeping one. I've never owned a reptile before, I have just a dog and many tropical fish, so I want to make sure I know to properly care for one if I do eventually get one. I have two...

    I brought my new crestie home on Tuesday from a small local pet shop. I found a regular, healthy-looking poop on Thursday morning but since then I've only really been finding urates around the cage. He's about 3-4 months old and his cgd bowl has been found empty in the morning for the past few...

    Hi everyone! I am planning on getting a Crested Gecko and have been researching all the equipment I'll need for the vivarium set-up. When I came to the lighting, I was in two minds about whether I should get a UVB 2% strip light or not due to the vitamin D3 intake need by cresties. I intend...

    Hello, I'm just after some opinions as to what sex my rexy is? She's approximately 20mths old and I believe she is a female. But I just caught her biting the back of another female crest and it has now made me worry that I may have sexed her wrong! 😁 So hopefully I'll get some reassurance for...

    Hey everyone! So I've been looking after a Crested Gecko for about three weeks now, and I've noticed he's spending a lot of time laying around at the top of the vivarium where his log and foliage is. I'm rather concerned that he's getting lonely (as silly as that sounds). He was very...

    I have had a thought around moving females in with other males whilst in breeding session. With female geckos holding sperm when separated from males and continually laying in the absence of a male until cooled off. If a female was holding sperm and was introduced to a different male after...
