In Reply to: Cresteds are AWESOME! posted by Erika on April 28, 2003 at 21:31:25:

You had a few major mistakes in your info.......putting honey in your geckos baby foo is a very bad idea, as cresteds are mainly insectivorious and the honey has too much needless sugar in it that has no nutrional value. If you want to give a treat, try the occasional waxworm or butterworm. Also, you definitely DO NOT want to keep a crested "warm." The ideal temp range is 74-78F. Babies especially are susceptible to over-heating if the temps go over 80-82. For most people, room temp works fine, but a small heating pad on a thermostat or a low-wattage red/black bulb works fine if it gets too cold in the cage. I would definitely suggest you do some more research and not rely SOLELY on people's opinons in the forums.......I myself think that cresteds AND leopards make great beginner geckos, it is just up to you and what you are looking for. Hope this helps!
