Nope pine has certain toxins in it that can harm your gecko. For a crested gecko I’d recommend buying eco-earth if you don’t like eco earth just use paper towels.

Whomever wrote that care sheet should be smacked! *chuckles* Good on you for double checking. Sorry I didnt get the message sooner, before you bought the pine bedding. That stuff has been deemed bad for over 20 years (since I worked for a pet food store in the early 90s!) because it causes respiratory issues in most animals. It really molds in high humidity. Not good for your pet or you.
