This reptile gets its common name from the cranial bumps that give the appearance of horns or ears; in fact, auriculatus is Latin for "ears" or "eared", depending on the case. Other characteristics of this gecko include a thin prehensile tail which will regenerate if it drops off, as well as small adhesive toe pads. Although these geckos have the ability to grip vines, branches, and other obstacles, most do not have the ability to climb sheer surfaces, such as glass. As small as one inch long (from snout to vent) and weighing 3 grams at hatching, it reaches an average length of 7 to 9 inches and 60 to 70 grams in weight. They are considered a small to medium size gecko.

SCIENTIFIC NAME
Rhacodactylus auriculatus

ORIGIN
New Caledonia

HABITAT
2 ½ gallon tank for Babys, 5-gallon tank for juveniles, 10-gallon tank for sub-adults and a 20-gallon tank for adults. Be sure to provide a couple hides, plenty of places to climb like vines and leaves. We suggest a substrate free bottom like paper towels or tile. Height is more important than floor space as they enjoy climbing.

DIET
Roaches, crickets and "Repashy" is our recommended foods. However, mealworms, superworms, and other insects are also acceptable in variety.

TEMPERATURE
70-80F, heating generally isn’t a concern with this species. We recommend a temperature between 72-75F.

HUMIDITY
60%-80%, this can be accomplished by spraying down your enclosure 3-4 times a week. Let your enclosure dry out to 40-50% humidity before spraying enclosure again.

ADULT SIZE
They can grow to an excess of 7-9” in length and can weigh more than 60g+.

LIFESPAN
15-20 Years (Averaging at 17 years) 

SOCIAL BEHAVIOR
We do not recommend keeping crested geckos together as they can become aggressive and drop their tails when they fight.
