Product Description

The Crested Gecko originates from New Caledonia and was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered in 1994.

They are the most arboreal of the Rhacodactyhis species, preferring to inhabit the canopy of the New Caledonian rain forests. These Geckos feed on small insects and decayed fruits from the forest floor. They are primarily nocturnal and spend most daylight hours sleeping.

Crested Geckos are able to drop their tail to escape predators, but unlike other species, it will not re-grow. As they can tolerate handling, these Geckos make an ideal starter species. They are easy to care for and only require a small amount of space. However, they can become stressed under high temperatures.
