    I’ve had this Crested Gecko since she was a baby for about 2 ½ years. She has always been alone in her habitat. We have no other Geckos or reptiles in the house. As I went to mist the Gecko in the morning I reached in to take out a dead leaf only to realize that it wasn’t a leaf but a baby Gecko. Talk about an immaculate conception. Apparently it does happen but it’s extremely rare. So interesting that the Gecko just cloned it self, gotta love nature. So we named it Jesus (Hey-sus)

    Just an update about our little Crestie clone. She is doing fine and appears to be growing and she appears bright eyed and healthy. So far so good. minime3.jpg minime4.jpg minime5.jpg minime6.jpg minime7.jpg
