How Much Do Crested Geckos Cost?

I often am asked how much do crested geckos cost? Or, just as common, Why does that crested gecko cost so much? 

These are great questions to be asking because the answer is probably more simple than you think. Crested Geckos are bred by top breeders for a specific 'look', whether they are breeding for color, pattern, or for genetics, these variations can either be highly desirable, or not so much. 

Imagine you wanted to purchase a dog. But, you didn't want just any old dog, you wanted a jet black Labrador for duck hunting that had generations of lineage back to its great-great-great-grandpappy the Wolf. Where would you get this perfect black lab? 

You wouldn't go to the pound, you'd go to the best black Labrador breeders who had been breeding hunting dogs for generations. Well that is what is going on here, all of the breeders on the lists below breed the best of the best of their crested gecko morph(s). You won't find these at Petco or on Craigslist, these are truly investment quality geckos.

A Reptile Bred In The US Known As An Axanthic Crested Gecko Sold For $20,000 In 2021!

Altitude Exotics had a very public sale of one of their top grade A axanthic pinstripe crested geckos in March 2021. There was a lot of behind the scenes chirping that the axanthic (simple recessive) crested gecko market was saturated and the prices were falling. 

Brian Butler of Altitude Exotics called out the chirps on his YouTube channel and publicly auctioned his an Axanthic male for a final price of $20,000 after people were saying you couldn't even get $5,000 for one. 

While most crested geckos sell for under $1,000, the scarcity of the axanthic sold and because it retained much of its white pinstriping made for this large sale.

Lilly White Crested Geckos For Sale

How much does a lilly white crested gecko cost? You can find all types of lilly white crested geckos for sale on MorphMarket and all over the internet with wildly different pricing. This list of investment quality lilly white crested geckos for sale is really eye opening to the quality differences from high-end to the less expensive. Lilly Whites are a dominant trait which leads statistically to every other baby being a lilly white when bred to a normal. The 'Super' (lilly white to lilly white) results in an almost leucistic looking crested gecko but unfortunately none have ever survived more than a few days. 

The cost of a lilly white crested gecko is determined by the colors and patterns with high expression with either, red or tri-colors being the top desired traits.

Red Lilly White Crested Geckos For Sale

Here at Tenny's Crested Geckos we can't get enough red lilly whites. Something about the contrast of the lilly white dorsal and laterals with the creeping high expression of blood red in the upper laterals is mesmerizing. 

All lilly whites have a nice look but the brown and white ones are just so 2019. Unless it really has some crazy patterns, it's just another brown and white lilly white. 

Now, finding a cool looking true red lilly white or even tricolor lilly white is much more difficult and the prices usually reflect the scarcity. 

If you're looking for an investment crested gecko, consider choosing red lilly whites as they will hold their value for much longer because they are more difficult to produce. Go Team Red!

Tricolor Lilly White Crested Geckos For Sale

Tenny's true love is tricolor crested geckos. We have a nice female tricolor lilly white (Calla Lilly) that was produced by Tiki's Geckos (read a great story about Tikis Geckos).

If the red lilly whites are the step up from the brown lilly whites than the tricolor lilly whites have to be the next step.

It is hard enough to breed a red lilly white, now imagine trying to breed a crested gecko for multiple colors?

Tricolor lilly white crested geckos are a huge market favorite and do a great job of holding their value simply because of the scarcity.

It is like a good Dalmatian crested gecko, you can find 'ok' ones but finding a good one is really tough. That's why the prices are so high on these investment quality tricolor lilly whites.

Extreme Harlequin Crested Geckos For Sale

How much does an extreme harlequin crested gecko cost?

Who doesn't love the high expression extreme harlequins whose pattern creeps all the way up into the dorsal stripe. 

Extreme harlequins have little to now pattern in their lower lateral sides with most of the pattern only in the upper laterals.

The contrast and scarcity of these types of crested geckos has driven the cost up over the years.

The addition of breeding for specific colors, lavender, tricolor, red, yellow, black and oranges has made them even more in demand.

Pinstripe Crested Geckos For Sale

How much does a pinstripe crested gecko cost? The pinstripe crested gecko has a striking look across the back aka dorsal stripe. All of the scales along the exterior of the back stripe must contain the same color for the crested gecko to be considered a full pinstripe. It is pretty common to see partial pinstripes missing only one or two scales also garner a large price. In addition to the pinstripe, many of these crested geckos for sale have reduced patterns like the harlequins or crazy color patterns in reds, oranges, tricolors, yellows, and blacks. All of these traits increase the cost of the pinstripe crested gecko.

Super Dalmatian & Dalmatian Crested Geckos For Sale

How much does a Dalmatian crested gecko cost? That is a great question and the answer is usually determined by how much of its body is covered in Dalmatian spots and/or what color those spots are. The real question you are probably wondering is what is the difference between a Dalmatian and Super Dalmatian other than price? Usually, a crested gecko with A LOT of spots is consider a super Dalmatian and one with less spots is a Dalmatian. The problem lies with those geckos that kind of have a lot of spots but not as many spots as one with A LOT of spots... confused? Yeah, we are too. I've heard people say if the Dalmatian has more than a 100 spots it is a super. I've heard that 40% or more of the body has to be covered in spots to be a Super Dalmatian. Honestly, those ones in the middle are hard to judge their value or how much they should be for sale. Another factor that can really effect the cost of a Dalmatian crested gecko is the color or size of the spots. Most are black when that spot gets really big they call it an oil spot which is more desirable and more expensive. But the really cool Dalmatians have red, orange or white spots, often referred to as 'Confetti Dalmatians'. Those cost even more...
