Crowned animals are described as animals with a huge head crest in comparison to traditional head crest size.
*NOTE: Big heads do not always correlate to the physical size of the animal. 
This term is in reference to the head shape of the crested gecko, specifically its width. It is said that the head length will be 1.3 times less the head width. I’m not sure I would be comfortable measuring a crested geckos head, so I would suggest that if the length is short and the width is wide, then it is crowned. It is unlikely that this will be evident in young geckos, but will be noticeable when the gecko is an adult.
