    im possibly going to the show in ny end of march...but its such a long haul, even the reading and hamburg shows are really far for me :/ id blow more money in gas and a hotel room for a night at a show, than i would in a whole month -.- gah! i wish the shows were closer...theres a reptile place called cold blooded and company here locally, but they dont sell..just do shows :/ ive tried to contact them..but they never get back to me -.-

    $50 is not that exspensive for a crested. Unless the crested is like a patternless or a really bad looking harlequin they're going to be around that price range. The reptile shows might have them for cheaper but the cresties most likely wont be an awesome looking morph. If you want something cheaper I would go through a breeder and just order it.

    the local petco had them for $50..all were patternless, most had no tails, and were in bad shape :/ id like to find a breeder, or order, but shipping kills me!! :/

    Yeah $50 is honestly pretty cheap, and tails are just a personal preference. If they aren't healthy, that is a problem! Just wait, one will come up!

    i hope so..my city is dumb...ive posted ads all over the place about studding linus or cresties for sale..so far ive had thousands of views..and only 2 replies, each about $100 cresties -.- i hate this place..nobody keeps exotics here unless its ball pythons...which are soo common they shouldnt even be considered exotic anymore :/

    I have 8 currently and I think the least expensive one was 85 before shipping and that was on sale because the breeder wanted to get rid of some before it was too cold to ship and only a month old and 2g. Honestly for something 50 or less you just have to pick it up from a show so as to not pay shipping. Who wants a $50 gecko and then pay 50 for shipping? Keep an eye out on http://jbscresties.com/mygeckos.html she is AWESOME and has pretty good geckos for the price.

    For instance this is a SWEET gecko for $50

    If you were closer I could sell you one of mine! I'm looking to downsize and I'd give you a good price on one of them. ^_^
