Pet of the Week: Howard, a Crested Gecko PDF Print Email

alt


By Allison Roesser


Dec. 6, 2017:  Howard is a small adult crested gecko. Crested geckos are moderately sized animals, often reaching a total length of 8 to 10 inches, about half of which is their tail.

Crested geckos are a splendid exception to the rule of arboreal geckos being hands-off animals. Although they can be quick to jump, they are not aggressive, and with regular, gentle handling, they will definitely warm up to human interaction.

In general, crested geckos are easy to keep, and housing them is no exception. Both glass terrariums and screen cages have worked well for many gecko keepers.

One of the greatest things about crested geckos is their preference for cooler temperatures. They thrive at temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees. They can even tolerate nighttime temperatures in the 50s. This means that for the majority of keepers, no supplemental heating is required during much of the year. As a nocturnal species, full-spectrum UV lighting is not absolutely necessary.

If you are unsure about adopting this type of animal, an experienced staff member at the shelter is available to speak with you and explain everything you need to know about his care.

For more information about Howard, please contact Sean Casey Animal Rescue at CLOAKING or call 718-436-5163.
