Hey guys. I just got back from a trip to Africa (I have family that are missionaries there that we were visiting). It was such an amazing trip! While we were there, we went on a safari. There were these cutest little geckos that would visit my cabin/hut every night! Some were only a couple of centimeters long, and there was one that was a good foot that would visit my bathroom every night. It made me want a gecko now more than ever! (I almost considered taking one home, but that would be illegal....) Anyways, I'm still pretty sure that my parents won't let me get a leopard gecko, since they eat live food. (I haven't brought it up for about 2 months now- I don't want to nag) I mean, I still want one, but I'm looking into some other options as well. I've briefly considered getting a Crestie before, but now I'm seriously looking into it. I found some adorable ones with some pretty cool morphs. I know that they can mainly be kept on special crestie pre-made foods with supplements of fruit and what not. Of course I would get vitamins and everything else. It's not the food that I'm worried about. I've heard that their cages need to be misted down quite a bit and that they lick the water off of the walls, leaves, branches, etc. Would they actually drink out of a water dish if I supplied one? And how large should their cage be? I have a 10 gal right now- could I keep the baby in there and, when it gets larger, I will get at least a 20 gal. I would probably get something that's taller rather than longer. And I know I'll have to get a screen since cresties can actually climb. Any other things I should know about them? Are they smelly, loud, etc. Thanks for the help once again!
