My little babe will be here tonight at 7 so i am preparing .. and have been for days . Researching and what not .. however , i have never dealt with an agressive cresty before .. he is a dalmation cresty and im not sure if agression is also something that comes with that particular morph ? Any and all help advice is greatly appreciated

I also rescued a crestie that had his aggressive moments. The most important thing I did was, when I had to pick him up, I used a soft towel to wrap him in so he didn't bite me. I'm including the link to the article I wrote about this gecko, who unfortunately passed away last year:

Inread the article it was cute why did hw pass away so young ? Or am i missreading that ? .. my reptar has similar charcteristics but at the moment is vwry docile and nice a complete contraduction to what the craigslost add said . He was clearly not taken care of corectly however seems to be doing better this far . I hope a jekyll and hyde personality does not immerge but will have to see.. thanks for the advice

No, he did pass away young. Unfortunately I have a crypto positive household of geckos. I haven't had many losses among the crested geckos but I think Bart was a victim.
