NWI Chinchillas

Breeding quality chinchillas and rescuing exotics since 2003.

Crested Geckos!

As we have quite a few geckos up for adoption and more still coming in batches, along with multiple pics of each gecko... we figured they deserved their own page.

Starting with the links (word docs):



Sorry, we CANNOT ship these geckos

NEW BATCH OF GECKOS IN!!  SCROLL DOWN FOR PICS AND DESCRIPTIONS!

In case you missed it.... we recently got in a large group of crested geckos from someone who is no longer able to care for them, and wants them to find good homes! We have a variety of ages, weights, colors, and sizes of geckos, just depending on what you are wanting! Mostly males, but a few females in here as well!


As with all of our rescue animals, we do have a crested gecko care packet that you will need to read, as well as a crested gecko adoption form to fill out, should you want to adopt one of these little guys.  See above for the links.


We love this type of gecko, as they can live at house temperatures (70-80 during the day, 65-75 at night), and don’t need a heat source if your house falls within those ranges, and can be perfectly happy eating just crested gecko diet (CGD – a powder that is mixed with water to create a baby-food-consistency-food), so if you’re not a fan of feeding bugs, these might be for you! None of these crested geckos has ever bitten anyone!


All of these geckos are eating a 50/50 mix of Pangea Watermelon / Pangea Insect CGD, as well as occasional crickets.


Listed below are the geckos and their information.  Scroll down for individual pics and info.

-----------------------------------------------------------


We also have geckos that have hatched here, from one of our own pairings:


A -- unsexed -- 1.5 years -- dob 6/2/2016 -- small gecko kit -- 8 grams

C -- unsexed -- 9 months -- dob 5/14/17 -- small gecko kit -- 5 grams



The geckos have adoption fees as follows:

Geckos 1-10 grams -- $40 adoption fee

Geckos 11-20 grams -- $50 adoption fee

Geckos 21-30 grams -- $60 adoption fee

Geckos 31-40 grams -- $70 adoption fee

Geckos 41-50 grams -- $80 adoption fee

Geckos 51-60 grams -- $90 adoption fee


The adoption fee (above) includes the gecko, enough CGD (crested gecko diet) for a few feedings, and a printed out version of our gecko care packet. If you’d like an enclosure and supplies with the gecko, please read on…


We can send these geckos home with their (temporary) setups (they will eventually need upgrades, but these enclosures work just fine for the moment), as well as some supplies, as follows, in a gecko kit.


This gecko kit will contain:


Tub or kritter keeper-type enclosure for the gecko

Foliage / plants

Possibly a hide, depending on size of enclosure

Water bowl

Supply of bottle caps (feeding dishes)

1 ounce Pangea CGD (our 50/50 watermelon/insect mix)

Mist bottle

Paper towels for the bottom of the cage


This gecko kit will add to the price of the gecko:

Gecko kit – small -- $20

Gecko kit – medium -- $25

Gecko kit – large -- $30


Please note that the cost of the gecko kit adds onto the gecko adoption fee. For example, if you wanted to adopt #3 (Radio) – note that if you look in his info, he is 35g, which makes his adoption fee $70. Should you want the gecko kit with him, also note in his info that it says he is in a large gecko kit, which is $30. Therefore, to adopt Radio and the gecko kit would be $100.


Should you want more Pangea CGD, we can sell some to you by the ounce, in limited quantities, or refer you to some places this can be ordered, if you’d like larger quantities.


These geckos are located in Hammond, Indiana (zip code 46324). Sorry, we are unable to ship these geckos.
