I like the picture where it looks as if she were about to slap her husband in the face :D :main_laugh: Great animals and photos, as always!!!

It would have been way funnier if it was her about to slap him...however, I just got done feeding them and she was on her branch looking at him like she wears the pants in that enclosure. Guess I got the rare photo that he can show to his buddies trying to prove otherwise. These guys are really very social and super friendly, one of the reasons I love having them in my collection. Hoping this pair will breed for me this spring.

Good luck! They are very beautiful!

Do you go to the Indy reptile show? I was there twice in 2010, but now they do it on a Sunday, so I didn't make it this year. If you're vending there and have some cresteds with you, I guess I have to go there in 2012 :main_yes:

We've gone there a couple times, but they never have anything that we care for so we stopped going last year. We don't have any cresties, only rhacs we have are gargoyles. I do know someone who does vend there that does breed/sale cresties (her husband makes killer cheesecakes). Her website is www.indycrestedgeckos.webs.com

He quit eating crickets (won't touch dubias) and he lost about 8-9g since summer. All his fecals have come back negative, so he's in a temp enclosure (10g) until I can get him to eat on his own again. He gets pedialyte bath/sauna & CGD syringe feedings ever other night. I've been working carefully this past week to get his shed off, still have 1 knee & his tail to go. He lets me know when he's had enough of me & the q-tip/tweezers...he usually allows me to work 30-45 min a day. He's gotten more energy lately & I can tell that he & his mate miss each other, so hoping I can get him eating own his own soon so I can get them back together. (His mate is the female in the first photo.)

He looks great, though! I guess with leaf tails you won't see a "thin" tail like with sick leopard geckos? It must be much harder to detect if anything's wrong... It seems like a lot of work you're having with him. I'm helping my Silkie out of his shed right now, and when he has enough he just jumps away and walks off, but he never tried to bite (yet) :main_laugh:

By the way, if you have gargs available some time later this year, you can PM me :main_yes: I just bought three which I will post later in the right sub-forum. I'm working on a yellow line.
