Meet Wedgie by Dachindae Meet Wedgie by Dachindae
Meet Wedgie, my new crested gecko!
I got him at a reptile expo from a great guy, he was really sad to see him go.

Wedge is a blonde Harlequin and one of his eyes is darker than the other. I'm still waiting for his personality to emerge completely.

I hope to get a dark and cream colored female because he throws amazing red babies.

So adorable!! I want a pet reptile now :D Do they interact with people, or are they more independent animals? I'm looking into pets that wont' make me sneeze (so basically no mammals), has a long life span because I get so attached to things, and will interact and respond to me to some degree. Reptiles are just so cute!! I love his gorgeous eyes~

Ball pythons are great starter reptiles. They don't react with humans much since they aren't really social creatures and don't have the same mannerisms as mammals do.
Lizards, like cresties, can't be held as much as you'd like to hold them. 15 or 20 minutes a day for cresties. You just end up looking at them a lot.

Snakes are great though, they have pretty long lifespans. Ball pythons, when cared for correctly, can live up to 40 years.
I'd suggest a python/boa species if you want something long lived. But they get large so you have to be committed to spending a lot of time, money, and about 30-40 years of your life to them. Ball pythons typically don't get over 6 feet and are great animals to care for, they also don't bite very much.
I snuggle my ball python all the time, he's a sweetheart.

A ball python sounds awesome! I'd have to get used to feeding them mice, though. I was also considering a little parakeet because they seem to be pretty active. I'm doing more research on reptiles though. Thanks for the information! :D

Your photography is great. Also, your new little leezard is very photogenic. You should rename him "Ridiculously photogenic gecko"

Just make sure you don't feed him/her babyfood. It's not good for them.
Use Repashy Crested Gecko Diet and you'll be good c:

I know that. I'm one of the few persons ((here)) that actually reads the caresheets/stories and opinions of other people owning cresties before getting them. No impulse buying for me! I'm gonna get CGD and I will be going to make my own fruitmix too :D

Can't wait, really. *spazzes*
