Crested Gecko

Crested Geckos at the Agricultural Science Unit

Rhacodactylus ciliatus

Crested geckos have specialized toe pads that allow them to move along vertical surfaces effortlessly, and their prehensile tails add to their agility. They are also excellent jumpers.

Crested geckos usually have relatively docile temperaments, though they are a bit skittish and care is required when handling.

Crested geckos are a low-maintenance pet and are well-suited for children or novice lizard owners who have little time to devote to their daily care.
