Default The Mighty Jagrafess of thee Holy Hadrojassic Maxarodenfoe

Aka Jagrafess! Or Jag. Or Jagger.



I got him at a local reptile shop this afternoon after I got off work. It just so happens that this is the same reptile shop our geckos at work came from, but the ones at work were donated by a third party that originally got him from there. They only had 3 crested geckos, all male. There was one that looked similar to this guy, but bigger and he looked cloudy (they said usually he's bright yellow). Then this guy, then one that was maybe chocolate and cream harlequin? I'm still learning the morphs, so I can't guarantee that. They looked very well taken care of, nice set ups, and they were very willing to get each of them out to show me.

I had anticipated getting a much smaller one, maybe an older hatchling, but they didn't have any. That's fine, but it means he'll need a tub upgrade pretty soon! As in probably as soon as I can get one, put it together, and let it cure/air out (he's currently in a 27qt tub). I haven't weighed him yet, but my guess is he's around 25g. He's much smaller than the 45g female we have at work, and roughly the same size as our 30g leopard gecko.

He's already found his food and eaten it (very willingly!), finger painted with said food, found his humid hide (which is almost too small, too!), and pooped. Off to a good start He's VERY tame and handleable. They handle their reptiles regularly at the shop, and while I was checking out he was climbing all over the guy's arm.

I'm still a bit unsure of his color/morph. He's been brown, green, yellow, and olive already since I got him this afternoon. He has many spots - around 40 - and most of them are black, but there are several red ones too, including a BIG red spot under his neck I love the patternless/nearly patternless geckos, and I love spots, so he's pretty much exactly what I wanted. There may be some very faint striping, but it's VERY faint, or I'm imagining things.

I'm so happy with this little guy! Even though he already needs a tank upgrade, I'm glad I ended up with a young adult instead of a hatchling.
