Well, I have two examples of extremes. My "almost" brother in law's crested is so dopey it will sit on your hand or arm for quit awhile and not do anything. I figured what a great pet to hang out with. Now my crested, on the other hand, literally has gecko ADD. While I agree with Olstyn, she settled down a bit after about a year, she's still a bit too crazy. So, one, I'm starting to think the other gecko is brain damaged (probably not a bad idea in that household) and mine needs to eat less CGD (honey/sugar).

What I want to say is, although I'm not comfortable always handling my crested when I am alone. (This is partially due to a muscular problem on my part; I'm not as fast as I used to be.) She is wonderfully fun through the glass. I've learned her expressions over the years and, yes, I talk to her and try to understand her. We stick our tongues out at each other and such. Yes, I tease her, but she's just so darn funny. For instance, we have only one AC and we have to move the geckos into the main room each summer. That means the TV. Both of our geckos LOVE the TV, but different programming. Our crested is a total NFL/football nut. She will sit holding onto her CGD bowl eating out of it and staring at the TV. When halftime comes, she runs to the corner closest to where I'm sitting and stares angrily at me as if to say I changed the channel or something. (No, she still hasn't figured it out after all the games she's watched.) When the football comes back on, she rushes back to her "preferred seating" and her snack bowl. She's a hoot even inside her cage.

Guess what I'm trying to say is, yes, these are still "display" animals and you won't get to hold them more than once, maybe twice a week (depending on the animal, maybe more) but they can be very personable later in life through the glass/ mesh.
