Crested geckos, also known as Correlophus Ciliatus, are a species of lizard that is native to the islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. They are named for the crest of skin that runs along the top of their head and down their back, which is used for communication and displays. These lizards are relatively small, with adult specimens typically reaching lengths of only 6 to 8 inches (with tail). One of the most appealing aspects of crested geckos as pets is their docile nature. They are non-venomous and generally calm, making them a good choice for first-time lizard owners. They are also relatively easy to care for, as long as their enclosure is properly set up and maintained. In terms of enclosure, crested geckos require a tank that is large enough for them to move around and thermoregulate their body temperature. A 20-gallon tank is suitable for an adult gecko. The enclosure should also have a secure lid, as crested geckos are excellent climbers and may try to escape if given the opportunity. In terms of temperature, crested geckos need a need between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit with a humidity of at least 60%-80%. A thermostat and hydrometer should be used to ensure that the temperature and humidity remains consistent. In terms of lighting, crested geckos do not require special lighting and can be kept on a natural light cycle. In terms of diet, crested geckos are omnivores and should be fed a varied diet that includes both protein and plant matter. Commercial crested gecko diets are available, which provide a balanced mix of nutrients. Live insects can also be offered as occasional treats, but should not make up the majority of the gecko's diet. It is recommended to feed crested geckos every other day, and to provide fresh water at all times. Overall, crested geckos make great pets for reptile enthusiasts due to their docile nature and relative ease of care. With the proper enclosure, temperature, lighting, and diet, they can live long and healthy lives in captivity.
