The large array of patterns and colors that these animals can posses, along with the combination of their structural traits make the crested gecko one of the most polychromatic species of lizard in the world. Fortunately for us, the pioneers in breeding New Caledonian geckos have worked with countless generations to bring us the brightest colored and nicest patterned animals.
Over the years I have done my best to acquire the best bloodlines. My goal is to simply breed the highest quality animals possible. Crested geckos are extremely addicting and owners will often not be satisfied with just one. The amount of diversity makes more than one gecko highly desirable. Aside from that, these lizards are intriguing to watch grow and develop.
This page was created to showcase some of my breeders and their colors and patterns so that my clientele could have an idea of what their baby geckos will progressively turn into. For the most part crested geckos hatch with a reddish color tone, which is far from their adult coloration 90% of the time. On top of that, a crested geckos pattern can increase drastically from the time it is a hatchling (2-5 grams) to the time they reach adulthood (~45 grams). This page should also serve as a crested gecko morph and trait guide to an extent.
Lastly, this page will show the novice gecko keeper what they should expect when they purchase a 3 gram crested gecko baby from us. As you read along, please bear with me as it can get quite confusing if you are not already familiar with these morphs and terms. I did my best in trying to describe each morph/trait.
Like many other species of reptiles, crested geckos can seem dull or plain when they are not fired up. The color intensity can depend on several factors such as mood, temperature, humidity and whether the gecko is active or dormant. Crested geckos tend to fire up at night when they are active, when they are stressed, or if the humidity is high. A gecko will generally show its true “fired up colors” when it has reached sexual onset. The following pictures are examples of what these animals can look while they are unfired and fired.
