After being rediscovered in the mysterious forest of New Caledonia in 1994, Crested Geckos have been successfully captive bred producing hearty, robust, and extremely docile animals. With their wide-eyed, prehistoric look, triangle shaped heads, and frog like antics, they are quickly becoming the gecko of choice for reptile hobbyists.
The Crested Gecko, Rhacodactylus ciliatus, is one of six species and two subspecies in the genus Rhacodaactylus. In nature, these wonderful, robust geckos live in the mysterious forest of New Caledonia.
Despite being introduced into reptile keeping in 1994, the Crested Gecko has quickly become one of the most exciting animals available to reptile hobbyists. It has proven to be a hardy species and one of the easiest to maintain and breed in captivity.
Since the Crested Gecko is rapidly becoming popular with reptile enthusiasts, many of these enthusiasts are new to the hobby, all aspects of keeping and breeding healthy specimens are presented in this book.
In this updated version of Crested Geckos in Captivity, reptile breeder Robbie Hamper presents insight into the captive care of Rhacodactylus leachianus, Rhacodactylus auriculatus, and information on the other exciting gecko in this genus.
