Does anyone have any experience with this species? Better yet, does anyone know of a reputable breeder? I've had a love affair with them for some time now, and I think I'm ready to bring reptiles back into my home.

VMSHerp has a care sheet here but I can't remember if they're a good source of information...I've been out of the loop for way too long.

I'm getting my first Crested Gecko on Thursday (03/12/09), and I'm totally excited. Here are some pictures of the little guy!

My Fiance and I are moving at the beginning of August and we are trying to figure out how to move the herps and when to move them as to not stress them out to much. We will be moving the following:
0.1.0 Bearded Dragon
1.0.0 Egyptian Sandfish Skink
0.0.4 Crested Gecko

Any tips or suggestions are very welcome as we don't want out pets to get stressed out to much.

I walk with a friend three or four times a week; we walk about half a mile on pavement and the rest on dirt roads.  This has been a reptile week!  On Monday, we saw a ringneck snake that was dead on road, but then saw a black rat snake.  On Wednesday, a ringneck snake and a yellow-bellied water snake.  On Friday another ringneck and 3 box turtles (that day we also saw two deer, a groundhog and a couple of muskrats). Then yesterday we saw a dead on road rough green snake and a copperhead.  My friend is not a snake person at all and in this area a venomous snake on a road is often a target.  I got her to move away and I got a stick and moved him off the road.

I've got to start taking my camera with me on these walks!

Is it the consensus here that all wild caught animals are a bad thing to have?  I didn't realize that was the case on herpers.  In my opinion, as long as it is legal, and you can care for it responsibly, there's not a problem with taking an animal from the wild.  Many a child has begun their herp fascination with a box turtle.  
I'd really like to know how you all feel; it is not covered in the community info page.  Well, for that matter it's not covered in herpers community info either but I was definitely informed.
I appreciate the input; I don't want to belong to a group that has an opposing viewpoint to mine.

Well, this week we headed over to Busch Gardens in Tampa. They have some WONDERFUL reptile exhibits. The american alligators were so amazing. I've worked with babies..as the one below in my hand..and the adults just amazed me..the largest looked to be around 15 feet long. I loved the Sliders just cruising along on the backs of the gators. There were also the smaller caimens (spelling?) and the snake exhibits. Unfortunately those pictures didn't come out that well..so below are teh few that did. They had the western set up of various rat snakes. Albino corns, striped rat snakes..and ocatee(spelling) dark orange and brown corns. There were gila monsters, monitors and frogs also.

Below also is our house gecko. H'es been hanging around our porchlight for sometime, and yesterday he ended up IN the house and went behnd our stereo and tv center when we came in. My husband and i tore everything apart and caught him. AS you can see he's VERY thin. I am not going to catch adn keep him, but does anyone know of some food i could put out that might help him? Like i could mount a tiny shelf into my wall outside and put maybe bugs in there..?

See? He's SOOO skinny!
