Have a look on Ebay, there's always all kinds on there for quite resonable prices.. Just go to .ca.. Make more sense since you're in Canada.. I also think that Staples carries digital scales as well.

Thanks, I checked on ebay but i'd rather buy at one at a store and have it right away. I'll do the ebay thing if I cant find a good deal.

Business Depot/Staples has a nice little Sunbeam unit that does one gram increments and has tare function... I bought one last year, and it was around 50 bucks...has auto off as well

Radio Shack has a digital scale for $25. It is good up to 3kg.

actually, I bought mine off of an ebay store, warranty and everything. It came promptly and I love it.

This is the one I have:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3813142198

I use it to weigh bearded dragons, rodents, leopard gecko's, etc. Very accurate, easy to use

edit: I bought mine through an auction, and got it cheaper than the buy it now price. They have some on auction now actually

I just want to make one suggestion no matter what dealer you use for your scale. Buy a scale that has a low maximum capacity. What I mean by this is pick a scale that goes up to 500 grams and no higher if all you are doing is weighing crested geckos. Scales that can weigh heavier items are better at weighing heavy items but aren't very good at weighing low weight items. This is only true for digital scales. Example, my vet's scale goes up to 2 kg. He gets a reading 1 gram different than my .5 kg scale. It might not seem like a lot but my geckos are only about 5 grams.
