Temperment:

Crested Geckos are
an easy to care for species that can be very entertaining. Like all arboreal
geckos they have specialised sticky pads on their feet to allow them to grip
onto almost any surface. The do not have eyelids and will lick their eye to
keep it moist. Their prehensile tails can drop off and will not grow back, they
may drop them for reasons we cannot understand but it is always related to
believing a predator is trying to eat them. They may take a week or so to get
back to being as agile as they were prior to dropping a tail.

Crested Geckos  are suitable for beginners and experts alike,
with easy handling once the owner has got used to their penchant for jumping. Humidity
and temperatures levels are fairly stable in their natural habitat but they
will accept a drop or rise in both as long as they settle again.
