    Hi,

    I’ve recently adopted a crested gecko and I think I’m doing ok

    I’ve only just joined the forum as never owned a gecko before. Didn’t realise the importance of weighing them so I did today. She was born in September. How much should she weigh...I apologise if this is a stupid question and it’s answered elsewhere but I’ve never been on a forum before and only just worked out how to post!

    Thanks for any help....

    Lindsay

    Their weights can vary greatly. I have one that hatched in October and currently weighs 9 grams. I'll bet there are other cresties the same age that weigh considerably more and also less

    Weighing a Gecko isn't important at all, unless you're planning on breeding. As long as it's eating, healthy, and not skin & bones or obese, don't worry about it.

    Thank you both so much for your replies. Having read some more, s/he seems healthy and thriving so I’ll stop stressing!

    Thank you x

    I’d been weighing mine every so often because that’s what I’d done at work! Didn’t realize it was unnecessary, whoops. They’ll probably appreciate not having to mess with that anymore.
