Here are some pics of my beautiful new Cresties, they're all about 12-14months old but a bit on the thin side soim fattening them up and they're getting very spoilt! I got them on thursday night and they're settling in well...
So! Introducing...
The male, (going into shed) Havent quite got a name yet but i'm thinking maybe Kurian? any other ideas?!
Fired:

Not fired: (I thought they were supposed to change the other way around!!!)

Cant decide if hes flame or harley, as his side patterns only really show up when hes dark (relaxed)
what do you think?

female 2, Setae (the sweetest thing shes so cuddly!)
I cant capture her colour at all, she comes out all dull but when shes not fired shes a light yellow, then fired to a mustardy yellow. Also shedding.


Setae (top), 3rd female (hiding behind Setae) and Madame Mim (bottom)


3rd and final female, no name yet so please help!! Shes a lovely olive flame, gets really dark green!


So what do you think???

Thanks guys theyre really sweet. Gaboon, if youve kept any reps then theyre really easy to keep. Im in the process of writing a caresheet for them so once its done ill post it on here. Basically they like it not hot, any more than 85F for any period of time will send them into hyperthermic shock, so most people keep them between 70 and 80F which is fine. Room temp in summer and room temp plus a small heat mat in very cold winter days (depending on your central heating). They like it moderatly humid, between 50 and 65 is fine, New caledonia ranges massively in humidity, even reaching 99% sometimes so theyre pretty hardy. They eat livefood and non-citrus fruits, or you can use Crested Gecko meal replacement powder which is complete. If you've looked into them then you'll know all the cool morphs they come in and how you never know what you'll get!! its like kinder eggs!

theyre great and really easy, Im hoping to have these guys breeding soon so ill have some gorgeuos little babies incubating in the next few months so watch this space if you want some stunners!!!:D

cheers for that ive kept a few lizards in the past and i reckon ill try to get some cresties next year.... so do you mean the hatchlings are apparently random on colour like ATB's?

i need to do a little research before i dive in but from what youve allready seid they sound easy enough.

cheers,
cass

Yea when you decide just pm me and ill send you to some good sites. what i mean on the colour is that they're not genetically predictable like leos or corns etc, you can potentially get any colour and any morph out of any pair. you;re more likely to get ones similar features to the parents but you often get oddballs and random morphs come out!
