I have a student that was trying to get rid of her Leopard Gecko. She has a few other animals that require attention, she goes to school and work.
I took in Mr. Leopard Gecko. That same night I told Travis to call in for pizza. Isaak's sent me a meme to bring home pizza, but the night he did that we had something in the slow cooker.
When I got home I said, "Isaak I have a surprise for you." I pulled out the pizza.
To his surprise I next pulled out a tank with a Leopard Gecko in it. I call him a Therapy Gecko. Isaak kept getting worked up that he didn't ever have a pet. Now he has one.
Isaak said he was going to name him a color he is. The Gecko is speckled all over. His name is "Sunny".
Sunny is not as cuddly as a cat or dog, but we love him.
Even I have held Sunny.
Sunny is nocturnal, so he's the most active at night. He loves hanging out on his new petrified rock - lepidodendron stigmaria.
I think he loves what we've done to his tank. He did have blue sand. I read that sand isn't great for little lizards. They lick it, and it gets into their digestive track.
