Hello! I used to breed crested geckos and all of the babies I've raised over the years seem very large at 2 years old, but one in particular I decided to keep is only 9 grams at (2 years old in August). She eats, climbs, isn't too thin or anything. She's just so small!! Is there such a thing as reptile dwarfism or maybe she is a runt? Any ideas?

I don't know if she's truly a dwarf or not. There was someone on this forum quite a number of years ago that had a dwarf leopard gecko (you can see a post about her here https://geckoforums.net/threads/spider.100813/#post-798533 and can find more posts about her by searching the forum for "Spider"). As you'll see from the picture, Spider had a normal sized head and a shortened, stumpy body. If your crested gecko seems well proportioned, it's probably just a small gecko.
