Choosing the right species of gecko for you can be a little confusing. There are many beautiful and interesting geckos on the pet market today. They will grow to different sizes, have different environmental needs, different dietary needs, respond differently to handling and will even be awake at different times of the day. So how do you choose what is right for you? I've compiled information about Crested Geckos, M. Chahoua, R. Leachianus, and Gargoyle Geckos on this site as that is what we primarily deal with. They are all nocturnal and arboreal species from the Island chain of New Caledonia. For more information about choosing from a wider variety of species I suggest this article in Reptiles Magazine written by Julie Bergman.
