Well, I'm sorry, I was just giving some info that was given to us from the breeder, who has been breeding and handling them for years so I wouldn't say that they are 'major' mistakes, we don't give honey to them very often, and we do give them those worms once in awhile...but anyways...at least we agree that cresteds are good starters.

: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!
