How do I install the SunGrow Gecko House?
There are a couple options for adding the SunGrow Coco Hut to your crested gecko’s habitat. The easiest and quickest way is to simply place the coconut shell on the floor of your pet’s terrarium and let your pet enjoy. This way the house can be moved about the environment keeping your pet amused and interested. You could also mount the coco hut to something heavy and stationary to keep it solidly in one place. A common way to install the gecko hut is to use the included 4” length of rope to hang it from the ceiling of your gecko’s habitat.
Why do crested geckos make great pets?
Because crested geckos are adorable, gentle, playful and easy to care for, they are an ideal reptile pet for beginners. Crested geckos can change colors like chameleons, but they are cheaper, friendlier, and with lower maintenance requirements. When your pet gecko’s color is more vibrant, it is referred to as being “fired up,” as opposed to being “fired down” when the coloring is more muted. The cute little geckos have minimal requirements as they do not need special lighting and mostly just need a warm, humid environment to be happy. In the wild, crested geckos are primarily tree dwellers who love to jump and climb. Hiding places are also important to crested geckos. The gecko Hut provides your reptile pet with a place to climb on, explore and hide out in. So give them the feel of their native habitat with the SunGrow Coco Hut.
