I agreed to foster a crested gecko for a local reptile rescue, The Gecko Sanctuary.
Meet Bartholomew, also known as Black Bart:

The trouble with fostering is you get attached then, before you know it, you have a new animal added to your menagerie! How's he settling in?

Normally I don't have much trouble moving geckos along because I have so many already. However, I'll probably keep him because I've been wanting a very dark crestie for awhile. He's calm but if I try to touch him he tries to bite me. I have to take him to the vet in a few weeks for a well-gecko check up and hopefully I'll be able to transfer him to a travel container without losing a finger! (I'm planning to wear gloves)

Gosh, I didn't realize they have a rough mouth. Is it just a serrated edge?

Hahahaha - cresties don't really have teeth. Well, they do but they are super tiny and won't even penetrate the skin. Don't worry, the most it will do is startle you.

Bart has mellowed tremendously and is now letting me pick him up with no problem.
