Lilly White Crested Gecko
Welcome to Morphs Central!
We produce several distinct parts of reptiles: (i) Bearded dragon (ii) Gargoyle Geckos, but our primary focus and specialty are bearded dragons (pogona vitticeps).

We believe that these reptiles especially bearded dragons, make the best captive kept reptiles on the planet.
They’re a great size (not too big, not too small); generally very docile and handle-able; come in many different colors and patterns; can thrive in many environments.
From simple, easy to construct plastic bins to elaborate, beautifully planted glass terrariums; long-lived (capable of 20+ years); hardy; relatively low maintenance; breed-able for most experienced keepers; etc.
We have assembled a phenomenal collection of crested geckos for sale that was selectively acquired and produced from only the finest animals over many years.
We seem to be constantly in awe of the beautiful animals that are produced each season and thoroughly enjoy keeping and sharing these animals.
How long do crested geckos live?
We are often curious to know how long do these lizards live when they’re in captivity. The lifespan plays a crucial role when preparing for getting a pet.
Their lifespan is long, similar to other larger pets like cats and dogs. Keeping them is a long-term commitment, and it is best to be prepared to care for them for decades.
They are perfect pets to keep for all kinds of herpetologists from beginners to experts. In this article, you will get an insight into the lifespan of those in captivity and the wild.
In captivity, they have a long lifespan, which ranges from 15 to 20 years. Some researchers estimate that they can live for about 30 years.
However, numerous factors can influence their lifespans like care, genetics, and diets. Learn more
Giant gecko lizard
These lizards crested geckos are mostly docile and shy away from attacking creatures larger than a cat or dog.
Despite their shyness, they are ultimately curious creatures, and often approach bigger creatures simply to investigate.
Of course, a giant gecko is more than capable of defending itself, biting creatures that react violently to the lizard when fleeing is not an option. Some humanoids train giant geckos as bestial guardians.
Smaller humanoids (in particular, goblins) can even use the creatures as mounts, taking advantage of their superior climbing skills to attack from seemingly impossible positions and angles.
A giant gecko measures 8 feet from nose to tail and weighs 120 pounds. Coloration among giant geckos can vary wildly, though most are some shade of green.
Little information is known about gecko lizards in the wild. Since they were rediscovered in 1829 and when scientist first found their remains 100 years ago, cresties have been bred in captivity.
However, these lizards are native to New Caledonia, a block of islands off the Australian coast.
Geckos are small lizards belonging to the infraorder Gekkota, found in warm climates throughout the world. They range from 1.6 to 60 cm (0.64 to 24 inches). Geckos are unique among lizards for their vocalizations, which differ from species to species.
Most geckos in the family Gekkonidae use chirping or clicking sounds in their social interactions, tokay geckos (Gekko gecko) are known for their loud mating calls, and some other species are capable of making hissing noises when alarmed or threatened.
They are the most species-rich group of lizards, with about 1,500 different species worldwide. The New Latin gekko and English “gecko” stem from the Indonesian-Malay gēkoq, which is imitative of sounds that some species make.
All geckos except species in the family Eublepharidae lack eyelids; instead, the outer surface of the eyeball has a transparent membrane, the cornea.
They have a fixed lens within each iris that enlarges in darkness to let in more light. Carp’s barking gecko licking its cornea to clear it of dust. A Mediterranean house gecko in an ambush on a nest of the sphecid wasp Sceliphron spinifex
Since they cannot blink, species without eyelids generally lick their own corneas when they need to clear them of dust and dirt, in order to keep them clean and moist.
Nocturnal species have excellent night vision; their color vision in low light is 350 times more sensitive than human color vision.
The nocturnal geckos evolved from diurnal species, which had lost the eye rods.
They also use a multifocal optical system that allows them to generate a sharp image for at least two different depths.
While most gecko species are nocturnal, some species are diurnal and active during the day, which has evolved multiple times independently.

Like most lizards, they can lose their tails in defence, a process called autotomy. Many species are well known for their specialized toe pads that enable them to climb smooth and vertical surfaces, and even cross indoor ceilings with ease.
Geckos are well known to people who live in warm regions of the world, where several species make their home inside human habitations.
These (for example the house gecko) become part of the indoor menagerie and are often welcomed, as they feed on insects, including moths and mosquitoes.
Unlike most lizards, geckos are usually nocturnal. The largest species, the kawekaweau, is only known from a single, stuffed specimen found in the basement of a museum in Marseille, France.
This gecko was 60 cm (24 in) long and it was likely endemic to New Zealand, where it lived in native forests.
It was probably wiped out along with much of the native fauna of these islands in the late 19th century when new invasive species such as rats and stoats were introduced to the country during European colonization.
The smallest gecko, the Jaragua sphere, is a mere 1.6 cm (about half an inch) long and was discovered in 2001 on a small island off the coast of Hispaniola.Learn more
