This page will contain guides and research for all animals we keep at Lil Monsters Reptiles. If you can't find one right now it is because we are still working on them. We will continue to update and publish our work as it comes out.
Additional to the care guides for each species, you can find details on specific care such as husbandry, books to read, and specific diets that we use here.
Crested Gecko Care and Research
Cresteds are a relatively low maintenance species and are one of the most popular pet reptiles for that reason. We love helping our customers dial in their pet's care. Here you will find Quick reference guides that you will receive when you purchase an animal from us and an expanded guide helping to answer some of the more common questions we see.
We house all our animals in a tub system individually on paper towels, egg cartons. and plants until they are large enough for their own adult tubs.
We have separate large tubs for Breeding.
