Yeah, I recognized gecko#1 immediately.
It's interesting that gecko#2 lightened-up so much. That one was one of my darkest autumn babies. 'He' did lighten-up with snowy-white patterns occasionally during the day, but 'his' overall color was normally very dark brown for the time that i raised him.
The parents of gecko#2 produced for the first time last year, so I'm not sure how the the babies will look as adults, but both parent are very dark-brown with fire and brindle patterns.
Cresties change so much from adolescence to adults that it can be very difficult to predict their eventual adult appearance. IMO, that's one of the things that make cresties so neat. You never really know exactly what you're going to get.
Hope all goes well. Let me know how things work-out for you and feel free to send pics or ask Qs at any time.
:Yeah, I'm pretty happy with these little guys. They eat very well and have been growing nicely. Gecko #1 was the high-contrast brindle I bought from you, and Gecko #2 was actually a dark chocolate brindle, but I can never seem to get it to display dark coloration... more often than not, he's very pale, almost ghost white. I'm hoping one's male and one's female, though, because I would like to breed them at some point. Anyway, I'll try and remember to post pics in a month or two. Hopefully then gender can be determined with more certainty.
