Cresties are great pets. I have 1.2. They are very mellow and sweet. I can stick my hands in there to feed them or move things around and they don't mind. They hand onto the plants and onto the side of the tank during the day until the it gets dark. They then chase crickets around or eat their baby food. They love to jump around when you take them out of their cage. I haven't heard them make any noises. They are fun to watch when they walk on the flat ground since their toes curl up so they don't stick to the surface. I'm hoping they will breed when they get older. Two of mine I got when they were hatchlings and raised them to the 5 months old they are now.

:Hello. I have several reptiles so I generally know what to expect out of a herp as a pet. However, I'm still curious as to the crested geckos behaviour in regards to handling, any noise they make, ecetera. Any anecdotes, advice, or information about what sort of pet these guys make is greatly apreciated.
