Hi,
I just got this little one for free from someone who didn’t want him. I was told he is a crested gecko, but upon further inspection, something doesn’t seem right. Is my baby a crested gecko or a gargoyle gecko? Also what morph does he look like?

Definitely a gargoyle! I just got a baby gargoyle a week ago, I can probably help you with any care questions as well ❤️
He looks to be a striped morph, likely black and white super stripe because I do not see any coloration besides the base coloring, and the stripes on that are very pronounced. Most breeders should know the difference between a crested and gargoyle gecko, he seems pretty healthy to me which is good because the misinformation could be a sign of unknowledgeable breeding. Super stripes are pretty rare but are becoming more popular, mine is likely a super stripe as well but has far more coloration and less base stripes. Black and white super stripes are beautiful! He is a beautiful baby
Here is a picture of mine, his name is Therin 4C2126B8-1B42-4B99-B71A-DE3CB6E8FACB.jpeg

Thank you so much for all the information. I figured he wasn’t a crested gecko once I got her home. I guess I have some research to do. Btw your baby is beautiful

Also my baby weighs 7 grams. Is there a way I can get a guess of her age based on her weight?
Since they grow depending on what they eat, I think that weight varies a lot even for older geckos. However, through research I have found that gargoyles begin to develops their signature bumps on their head at around 3 months. Because of this, and since mine displays this trait, I’d assume that yours is also at least three months old based on his head bumps.

Thank you, that helps a lot.
