i'm so happy!!!!!

I'M A PROUD NEW OWNER OF A CRESTED GECKO!!! i've wanted one ever since i bought my hognose snake..... now i couldn't be happier!!!, i do have some questions though......is it normal for them to almost constantly be licking? is it safe for them to get fairly wet(not submerged or anything), does anyone what the change in colors mean? (ie: dark chocolate to light light beige)....anyone who has any suggestions please feel free!! (i will have some pics soon!!)

Congrats on joining the rhacodactylus club... it's a very fun and cute club to be part of! You need to show us some pics of the girl! =)
It is normal to be licking when she first gets in a new place... she's trying to figure out her new home. She may also be hungry/thirsty.
Wet is not a problem (as long as they're not really any standing water or anything). Their skin is a lot like leos in that they will sort of repel water.
the color change is normal and will happen depending on mood, temperature, time of day, time of season, and presence of others.

thanks for the quick reply!!! as ALL people are with new additions, i am super concerned that my baby is going to catch a draft or be too stressed in his/her new evironment, all of the "normal" worries with a little added paranoya!!! thats me!!! i'll be watching like a hawk for the next few days and probably have tons more questions as i'm not too familiar with the behaviour of crested geckos, (whats normal, whats not!) but thats why there are such great sites like this one!!!!! thank god!!!
