This species of gecko is native to the southern part of New Caledonia island, near Australia. It is also known as the Eyelash Gecko, for obvious reasons! It was thought to be extinct until rediscovered in 1994. Crested geckos are now popular all over the world and have been bred to produce all sorts of colours. They are more sturdy and placid than most species of gecko and, if handled gently, are quite relaxed and don’t try to run away.
Biscuit is a very tame adult rescue gecko who loves to warm herself on your hand. Toothless is a tiny baby who has been bought straight from a specialist breeder and is already climbing up our fingers and sometimes taking daredevil leaps up our arms!
Fascinating fact: They do not have eyelids so they lick their eyes often, with their long pink tongue!
