:I have two juvenile crested geckos who dont like to be handled much. Sometimes I get one on my hand in their cage, but I am afraid to take them out because my apartment has 18ft high cielings and I am afraid one will get away. They seem to be very fast and jumpy. Any handling suggestions?

Almost all the baby cresty's that I have encountered are pretty jumpy when they are small. I do not have any special handling tips except to hold them often, even though they are jumpy the more you hold them the sooner they will chill out.
