Have you got any closer pics of the side of your Crestie?

Ify say a high % pinstripe but I can’t tell if it’s also a harlequin or quad stripe?

I think it’s a Quad Stripe, but a closer pic of the side would clear things up.

Looking at it now I wouldn’t say either, it is missing more pins then I thought along the dorsal and although has line along the laterals, it is broken into three lines.

It’s a lovely gecko :grin: I’d say partial pinstripe, harlequin.

thanks for the help.
He’s/She’s wicked and loves get in to mischief not even year old yet and he/she is attached me but won’t eat bugs just waxworm but I have to take the head off

Bless, just remember that Wax worms are additictive and should be used as a treat only or your Crestie might stop eating CGD which will be bad. Have you tried dubia roaches?

I have 2 Cresties that will not eat bugs either so I offer my Cresties a bug diet occasionally to account for it.

Hopefully your Crestie will grow out of biting.

I breed my own dubia roaches so I can take the young ones for my Cresties. I know you can buy them young, just depends where you are as to where delivers them. I have a few young Cresties that are jumpy, they tend to calm down with age and handling.

Cresties love to jump, I tend to have a few plants nearby For the Cresties to jump on, I find it helps to calm them down

Definitely get your crestie off of waxworms ASAP, they are very unhealthy. A good substitute would be black soldier fly larvae, also called calci-worms and phoenix worms.

Wax worms should be used as a rare treat. Mine love them but I only use them every few months.

I don’t use black soldier fly larvae any more as some of my Cresties have pooped them out undigested. I’d only recommend them for adult Cresties.

Most of my Cresties like locusts as they like the hunt but dubias are better for my nervous geckos.

I’ve try quite bit in bugs he only eats waxworm and dubia roaches so day I’ve order some small one as runs from most bugs

I like dubia roaches as they are a very good source of food and they don’t roam in the enclosure.

Just make sure you gut load and dust the insects or they can do more harm than good

If you provide us with a picture of the belly at the base of the tail we could try to sex Bayleaf.

Get us a pic underneath and we can help. Usually at that age they’re most likely be a ‘bulge’. Well atleast all mine get one around then! :sweat_smile:

Depends, I’ve been able to tell for most of mine but then I’ve had a few slow growers that just like to wait as long as possible lol

But yes if you can get a close enough pic it might be visable by pores.

I have a jewellers loop to help with mine. I’ve got a few ideas on my young ones but I’m not 100% sure
