Crested Geckos originate from the south pacific island of New Caledonia. They were previously thought to be extinct in the wild until they were re-discovered in 1994. Since their re-discovery they have proven to be one of the most popular pet geckos in the world. Their care requirements re relatively straightforward and due to the ease of breeding them they have now been selectively bred for a wide range of colours. They are a calm and laid back species of gecko that responds well to handling making them an ideal choice for first time reptile keepers. In 2012 they were re-classified from Rhacodactylus ciliatus to Correlophus ciliatus.
