Haha, still laughing at the comment about eating its own tail. I'm glad my gecko hasn't "discovered" her tail that way... yet...

Just to add in on the "personality" discussion. I wanted a crested because a friend's crested was the most laid back creature on the plant. Totally fine hanging out for hours on your arm while you did something else... Instead I got a gecko with ADD. I sometimes think her head is going to fall off for all the snapping toward moving objects she does! She's a great gecko... but, well, kinda like Launchpad McQuack, I'm probably losing my audience here- Let's just say she's so distracted, she'll even get distracted in mid flight, miss her target and get saved by her tail... usually with a surprised look only matched by my own that she hasn't knocked herself out... again, YET.

I agree with many of the posters, crested are slightly more aggressive to one another than say a leo, and even two females have a greater potential for harassment. Gargs are not a good idea at all, they're even more aggressive. Perhaps if you were able to get two cresteds at a young age, assumed female and raised them together you'd have the least problems.

I have to ask about the waxworms - isn't that unhealthy? Everything I've ever read states waxworms only for rare treats or treating underweights. Excess waxworms seem to be bad for gecko "output" as well... all the fat. How are your geckos, age and weight? I'm curious as I've heard no one claim to a long term diet of waxworms. Ironically our crested won't take anything in worm form, but we've got a sick leo in that's moving up from waxes to crickets and waxes so that is an excellent sign, but we're still knee deep in bulk waxworms! Thanks in advance.
