You may also be handling them too much. Overhandling can be very stressful to geckos. Also are you grabbing them to pick them up? This can cause a gecko to freak out. Always let them crawl on you.

::My cresteds freak out every time I try to take them out now. Lately I haven't been handling them as much because I just got a new Bearded Dragon who has coccidia and hookworms. So I have been kind of busy with that. My female has always been like that, but my male hasn't. I have had them about 4 - 5 months now. What can I do to get them to like coming out or at least like me! LOL
::......I have tried giving them food everytime they come out.......
::......I have tried holding them inside their terrarium, but they just jump off.......
::......I have tried taking them out at least every other day.......
::Nothing seems to work and I am running out of ideas.
::Can you help?????
