Product Description

Crested geckos are unique in appearance. They are bred for several different color morphs and patterns. These can include tans, oranges, reds, a few very dark ones, as well as patterns such as, tiger stripes and black spotted. Crested geckos, like many other species of gecko, can climb vertical surfaces. (Pending the surface material.) This is because of the spatula tipped setae on the geckos footpad. Each foot of a gecko that can climb vertical surfaces contains almost 500,000 Setae. Each setae is tipped with 100 - 1,000 spatulae. This massive infrastructure of fine setae/spatulae creates an interaction with van der waals forces allowing them the ability to bond with solid surfaces. It is also noteable that geckos have double jointed toes. The double joint allows them to remove their foot from the surface in which they are climbing by lifting their toes from the tip inward. Another notable feature of the crested gecko are their big, pretty eyes, with what seems to be eyelashes. They clean and moisten their eyes by licking them. Their skin is covered with fine scales making them look and feel silky.
