The Exo Terra Crested Gecko Habitat Kit comes with all the components necessary to give your terrarium hobby a successful start – including the Exo Terra Glass Terrarium, designed by European herpetologists. The Exo Terra Glass Terrarium features front opening doors, allowing easy access for maintenance and feeding and a unique double ventilation system with full screen top. All components of the Crested Gecko Habitat Kit are based on the knowledge gathered during the Crested Gecko Expedition in combination with information on captive husbandry from well-known Crested Gecko breeders. The background included in the kit is a copy of a tree trunk overgrown with lianas and littered with lichens and mosses that we found in the habitat of the Crested Gecko. The unique Totem ornament reflects the spirit of the indigenous Kanak people’s culture, their sacred totem statues are found all over the Islands. The Kanak Totem Ornament also serves as hiding cave, water bowl and food cup holder for the Exo Terra Crested Gecko Diet.
Crested Gecko Expedition
In January 2013 the Exo Terra Expedition team headed to New Caledonia, an island nation in the Pacific Ocean. This archipelago is the home of the well known Crested Gecko, one of the most kept gecko species in captivity today. The focus of the expedition was the natural history of the Crested Gecko and to collect relevant data to give a better insight on how to successfully keep and breed these unique geckos. The Expedition team scouted the rainforest by daytime to locate the habitats of the Crested Gecko, and returned at night to study their behavior in their natural environment. Wherever Crested Geckos were located temperature and humidity loggers were placed, samples of soil/ substrate was taken and we searched for ripe fruits and flowers that might be part of the Crested Gecko’s diet.
