New, black-eyed crestie

Circle of life is weird somedays. In the morning I found my 9 years old snake dead and I was really shaken badly by it. Yet, the same day I lost one of my pets I also got a one new, so it's all weirdly good and sad at the same time.

Meet my new beloved crestie, he's really beautiful (on the pics he was fired down/in partial fire up) and soo sweet and gentle, just walked on my hand like there is no hurry in the world <3 It's soo different than my adopted boy who hates me with passion.

Sorry that some pics are a little blurry, the light was rather bad. Also, any ideas on a name?

(Tried to do a good pics of his amazing black metallic eyes, but it's not that easy, haha! So I posted one from his breeder page for you to see. And yes, he was born with them, he is now around 14grams, so still a very young boy)

Awesome crested gecko! Do you know if the black eyes are hereditary or is it similar to gargoyle geckos where they just pop up from time to time?

Re: New, black-eyed crestie

Thank you! From what I talked with other owners of similiar dark eyed cresties (some were dark brown, other dark violet/grey) it's some type of paradoxing that just occurs out of nowhere. But I still plan to try breeding for it, just out of curiosity.

Here are some more pics, Zoltan is super lovely, after having 4 geckos that hated humans it's soo amazing to finally be able to just let him wander around:

Wowza! Wish I had him in my dalmatian breeding group! He's gorgeous! Conrats on the pick up, sorry to hear about the snake though.

Re: New, black-eyed crestie

Minkness, thank you! I think about getting him three different females like, one full pin, one high end extreme harley and one dalmatian, as I feel he could do nice things with all these projects. Problem with dalmatians is that I know only one person that has nice ones (Lots of Spots on facebook), and I'm sure her babies will be pricey enough for me to need to sell my kidney first (especially with shipping from US to Europe...)

But for now he's still a growing baby, so he only needs to worry about eating, haha!

Re: New, black-eyed crestie

Whatever you do...don't scare him and make him drop his tail!! I can't believe how easy it is for, and how often I read about, Geckos dropping their tails!

I used to catch and release blue-tailed skinks, horned toads, and some I called "sand diggers" (used their heads to plough under the sand) when I lived in NM. The only time I ever had them lose their tails was if I grabbed them by the tail...never had them just drop off due to fear, etc.

Re: New, black-eyed crestie

BillyCostume, thank you! He's very easy to take pics, as he just calmly walks around so I don't need to hold him with two hands.

Scubadiver, haha, I know, I heard a lot of stories too. But I need to say that even our super jumpy cresties - that I had few years ago and rehomed after a while - never tried to lose their tails... and they hated any human interaction. The same goes for our Sticky male, that we adopted last summer, he's very easily scared, but never tried to throw his tail too. Maybe we are just lucky to have cresties that don't even think about it, haha!

Re: New, black-eyed crestie

His eyes started to brighten a little, so I'm not sure how they will look in a few months. I'm also super mad at myself because it turned out today that my husbands phone camera is great for macro shots, and it's now too late to get a good macro pics of his black-black eyes.

These are from today, you can see that right eye is still darker, while the left has a lot of brigter "marbling":








Pic from March:


And from late February:

Re: New, black-eyed crestie

Did some new pics today, but this time it's just the general body and color, not eyes
