Why Is My Crested Gecko Always Hiding?

Crested geckos are naturally shy and nocturnal, so it’s completely normal for them to hide during the day.

But, if yours is hiding all day and night, there might be some other factors at play.

It could be that:

  • He is new
  • Stressed
  • Or ill.

So, if your gecko is new, be patient!

Allow it some time to adjust to its new environment.

But if not, watch your gecko closely, especially at night, to see if it comes out to eat and explore when it feels less observed.

Ensure your gecko’s enclosure has plenty of hides, plants (live or artificial), branches, and places to climb at multiple levels.

This will give them a sense of security.
