    Shopping for a crestie.... hmmmmm.....

    So many choices. What is your favorite morph? What to avoid? Might pick up a trio.

    I love super dalmatians and extreme tigers (aka brindles), the "tri color" harlequins and Halloween harlies are nice too. Good head structure (wide crest) and prominant spikes are always a plus.

    If you can purchase a slightly older baby, that works out best too as the tiny babies tend to be more fragile in terms of humidity and feeding. I would definitly get one that is already eating prepared diet and find out what kind/flavor it is feeding on.

    I have 2 cresties, 3 gargs, and a leachie. You might want to consider a garg as well. They get a little chunkier than cresteds, but have a much different look to them.

    I have only had one negative experience purchasing geckos. If you want me to, I can PM you with the name of that breeder (which I would avoid). Pangea is reputable, but sometimes overpriced compared to other breeders. Altitude exotics and dragon town are also well-known breeders to check out. Kawaii Reptiles (on FB) is the breeder I got my leachie from and they also do cresteds.
    Currently keeping:
    1.0 BCA 1.0 BCI
    1.0 CA BCI 1.1 BCLs
    0.1 BRB 1.2 KSBs
    1.0 Carpet 0.5 BPs
    0.2 cresteds 1.2 gargs
    0.0.1 BTS

    i adopted my crestie through a local rescue, so idk of any reputable crestie breeders.

    for morph(s): i like Dalmations (normal and super)! i also like the tri-colors and the ones with lots of cool patterning. (:

    idk what my crestie is morph-wise, but he's red, has some pattern on his sides, and spots on his face.
