I forgot to ask: do you guys use any type of heat source for cresties? I've got a heat mat attached to the side of Gilby's enclosure. I know that the optimal temps for cresties are between 72 and 78, and they can tolerate drops into the 60's and increases up to 80. The only reason I use one is my room is usually a bit cooler than the rest of the house, which is at 73.

Hey Franky....
No worries. If Gilbert turns out to be a female just change the name from gilbert to Gilberta.

I never used anything. A UVB light is recommended though. It should provide enough heat to keep him warm even in the coldest area of the house.

Here are some pictures of Gilbert, albeit horrible ones.

It's hard to tell what morph he is. Looks like a harley or flame ... It's really hard to see lol. But he's cute!!

Maybe one day I'll have a better camera in my possession; until then, the iphone will have to suffice.:/

I don't know what kind of morph he is either; I simply chose him based on his cuteness.

Aww, he's adorable! :D I think he looks flameish too, but it's hard to say now. His colors will probably develop a lot over the next few months.

As for lighting, I've never used it for heat. I had a UV light for one of the geckos once but after I switched up the tanks there was no place for it. It's a good thing to have though if you have the money for it. But it's not required.

I love him! He's always hopping around, ALWAYS.
