Crested Geckos are one of the coolest pets I have ever owned , and as soon as I move into a new apartment, I will definitely buy them again. It's like having your own miniature forest with reptile-monkeys. These cute, beautifully colored geckos have sticky, round pads that they use to climb around the plants, and use their tails to hang upside down. You can easily spend an hour watching them move around and explore. They don't like being held, but if you simply can't resist, make sure to look out for them peeing or pooping on you. They won't bite and aren't aggressive at all, so they are great for children. They only eat crickets, which are very cheap, and only need low daily maintenance. I give this reptile a 10/10!
