Ex-extinct!

crestina1

This is Crestina, one of our pretty little Crested Geckos. We’re very lucky to work with these friendly lizards at lion learners, they were once so elusive in their homeland of New Caledonia that they were thought extinct ! Their numbers plumited in the wild mainly due to the accidental introduction of fire ants, one of the worlds most dangerous invasive species. Thankfully, due to the hard work of conservationists and hobbyists, the geckos have made an astounding comeback since their rediscovery in  1994, only 23 years ago! It’s truly incredible that nature has this many surprises left to reveal to us, who knows what else is hiding out there…
