I was wondering what kind of gecko my crested is ??
Do you have a photo with the sides of the gecko showing? That will help in identifying its morph. It’s a lovely gecko!
Firstly, Welcome! Hope you enjoy it here, this is a brilliant community to be a part of
Now for the question, your little one is a Partial pinstripe
Welcome to the community, you have a cute lil Gecko
Is it a reverse pinstripe? Hard to tell on my phone in the dark. I can have a better look tomorrow.
As previously requested, do you have any pics of the side?
Thanks for the tag @erie-herps
Not a reverse no doesn’t have the dark lines all the way down.
I’m on my phone too, I’m only ever on my phone Keep being told off by Reece for being on it. I’m helping people ok’
Hubby tells me off too
Looks like it has it all the way along to me, but that could just be the light. Side view will help decide
Atleast I’m not the only one!
Stops before the front arms from what I can see. And think it’s shadowing. Usually line is a dark line all the way down to head. So I wouldn’t say reverse just a partial Pinstripe,
Partial Pinstripe for sure.
Does he/she have a name yet?
I agree, partial pinstripe. Very pretty
Phoenix but we are still unsure of gender. I personally think she is a girl, but I know little about gendering geckos in person.
Pheonix is a lil cutie How old is the Crestie?
Tbh most male Cresties usually have a bulge by the time they reach 1 and half. Do you have a jewellers loop? If so male Cresties will have a line of pores running from one leg to the other underneath it. This may be noticeable without a jewellers loop, but it certainly helps.
It’s difficult to do sometimes, I wait till a Crestie is pressed up against the glass or put in a small tub while I try to check. Torch may also help.
As said a looper would work to tell if any pores. But if you’re happy to wait and find out, then wait
I find some males can get a bulge from as early as 5g, which is around a couple months old, (our last male was a shower)
Others have shown anywhere up to 15g, Which is usually about 5 months.
Most here show before 10g though, I’ve only had the one that showed at 19g. Little late bloomer!
I am very new gendering gecko, what is a looper/where can i purchase one ? again thank you guys for being so incredibly helpful
A jewellers loop is what jewellers use to look at jewellery. Can get is almost anywhere online and cheaply too. Make sure it’s got 30X. I got mine from Amazon and it has 30X & 60X plus light. The light isn’t great but I use a torch to make it easier.
