:I have been seeing a lot of different temps lately for Cresteds. What's the recommend temperature for them. My gex is 2months old. My place is about 70degree F.
:Let me know thanks.
There is a lot of different information out there on Crested Gecko temperature requirements. Most people say "room temperature" is ok with no additional heat. In my experience, 70-72 (average room temps.) are too low. When my geckos go down to temperatures like that, their appetite isn't as good and they don't breed as well. My geckos seem to do best at about 78-80 during the day and 72-75 at night. If you go much above 80, they can heat stress. I had a few juveniles drop their tails once when my room spiked to 87. I'd try to keep it in the upper 70s.
