Owning A Crested Gecko

10


10 per session - Virtual OK

I can give you all the information you need on starting up your first terrarium, the do's and dont's of purchasing your first crestie(s) and of course caring for your geckos once you've got them all settled!

From the moment I first purchased my crested geckos, I've struggled with all the clichés myself:
- What should my terrarium look like? How big should it be?
- Where and how do I purchase crested gecko's?
- What should I feed my gecko?
- What do I do when my gecko refuses to eat?
- When and how can I breed with my geckos?
- What do I do when my gecko's going to lay eggs?
- How do I know if my gecko is as healthy as I think it is?
- What do I do when my gecko gets sick?
- How do I get the temperature and humidity right?

So if you find yourself in doubt or are super enthusiastic to own a crested gecko, I'll glady help you out!

Note: I'm a hobbyist. This means I know the basics of breeding with crested gecko's, though I'm no expert as I haven't bred (and have no intention to breed) with my own cresties.

Training & Qualifications


Two years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to his gecko's. As weird as it may sound, it was love on first sight! Instead of purchasing the ball python I initially wanted to have, I decided to purchase two crested gecko's instead. This was without a doubt the best decision ever and I started loving them even more.

As a veterinary student I'm trained in recognizing illnesses and odd behaviour. My training allows me to often determine the disease and underlying cause I'm dealing with This applies to crested gecko's too!

Availability & Preferences


I'm always around!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Roos-anne is the most attentive person I've done a deal with as of yet. Her information was extremely thorough. She really went the extra yard to get ...real solid answers. The questions she asked were on point and made her service extremely efficient and mega-super useful! I recommend her to anyone who has any questions regarding to their pets. She'll definitely impress you!show more

Owning A Guinea Pig

About Roos-anne Jansen

Hi there! I'm a Dutch veterinary student (MSc) and therefore vet-to-be. I'm proud to say that I was able to turn my passion into my profession and I'm very willing to share the information and kno...wledge I've obtained so far :) I love a good challenge and I very much enjoy trouble-shooting the many pets I encounter every day. Besides my obvious passion for animals, I spend a great deal of time drawing or painting, playing guitar, travelling and of course caring for my many pets. I'm the proud owner of two crested gecko's, two guinea pigs, a hamster, a cat and quite a few sweet water fish (I basically set up my own personal zoo). In the past I've also owned bunnies and 33 (!) stick insects. If you're wondering if I could possibly want to own more pets: the answer will always be yes. As a future vet I will have to choose a group of animals to specialize in eventually. I will most likely specialize in your every-day fuzzy animals (cats, dogs and all) and I'm hoping to focus on hormone-related issues. In order to find out which path I want to follow, I've spent a great amount of time volunteering and taking internships and will continue to expand my knowledge that way. show more
