    Check out our name section on the site. Reptile - Pet Names There are lots to choose from there. Also if you could put up a photo that would help, and maybe tell us if you were thinking of going off of a theme?

    I agree we would definitely need a picture of the little cutie pie in order to name him, plus we love looking a Crestie photos ;)

    Unfortunately, it is very common for older juvenile or adult Cresteds who weren't handled very often to "poo on you" when you remove then from their enclosure....(The only one of mine that ever did this was my Kanga, whom I got from a petsore when she was almost an adult..NONE of my others, who I have raised from hatchling size, ever do this.)
    It has been suggested that you first reach in, and hold onto the Crested, while keeping it in the cage..it will more than likely poo pretty quickly (while still in the cage)....at that time, you can take it out and you should be fine.
    Eventually, the more I handled/held my Kanga, the more she got used to me, and now she no longer "poos" on people..but it took quite a while for her to become accustomed to being handled..
