Best Places to Find Crested Geckos for Sale Offline

Pet stores

If you don’t want to buy a crested gecko that you can’t see for yourself or if you have a limited budget you can also find crested geckos for sale in pet stores. Pet stores or pet shops sell a lot of different animals. A lot of them also have crested geckos for sale.

Pet stores are probably the most popular place for buying your first crestie. They might be a bit more expensive than other options but they’re more accessible. In the United States, you can find crested geckos for sale in pet stores like PetCo and PetSmart with a price of $50.

Private breeders

A lot of crested geckos are sold by private breeders. You can find these breeders by scanning the classifieds in your local newspaper, check out the “for sale” ads on buy-and-sell sites, or join reptile groups on Facebook to find crested gecko breeders in your area. Some breeders also have websites but not all. If you’re a crested gecko breeder and are interested in getting in a free directory, please contact me through contact@mycrestedgecko.com.

Reptile rescues

Reptile rescues or shelters will give you a chance to re-home an abandoned little crested gecko. Of course, you won’t have the same choice and there might only be a limited number of crested geckos in the rescue. But they will often be free or the price will be a lot lower.

If you adopt a crested gecko from a reptile rescue you might have to fill in a form with all kinds of questions. These questions will determine if you’re able to take care of a crested gecko. The last thing a reptile rescue wants is to sell a crested gecko and have to take them back after a while. This can cause a lot of stress for the crested gecko.

Reptile expos

A reptile expo is one of the best ways to meet other reptile lovers and get to know different breeders and sellers. At the expo, you can ask all the questions you want to the breeders and they should be able to answer them without a problem. Handling a crested gecko at the expo also won’t be a problem. You can – at some expos – buy the necessary gear for your crested gecko or find books that can help you take care of your little pet.

The major problem with reptile expos is that they don’t happen that often and in some countries, there might not even be a reptile expo. So you might have to travel some distance. Since they don’t happen that often a lot of people might come to the expo and the building might be too crowded which isn’t that comfortable.
