Crested Geckos are hardy and extremely easy to care for they are one of the favorite lizards to have as a pet. They like to leap from perch to perch. They will tolerate small amounts of gentle handling, but it is not suggested to handle them unless it is required.
It is important to NEVER grab your Gecko by the tail, as his/her tail has the potential of falling off. It will grow back but not into its natural shape.
*Note, it is always recommended that you wash your hands with soap and water before and after handling your gecko.*
