Squiggles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Squiggles
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Leopard Gecko
Home: Texas, USA
   Squiggles is very nice and he has metabolic bone disease (M.B.D.). He is getting better, though. His personality is kind, slow and gentle. He is very loving and he never bites. His brother, Zippy, looks after him since Squiggles has M.B.D. Squiggles looks after Zippy as much as he can in return. He was sick when we got him but no one knew. Now, you may be thinking that a gecko might be kinda icky, so how did you get him? Well, I was at a school program where a lady and her father rescued and bred reptiles and amphibians. She told us that you could take a brochure and come to the place at their house where they keep all their critters. Then you'd get to hold snakes, lizards, crocs, and frogs. Then you could take home a baby corn snake or leopard gecko. I went home and asked my mom and she said yes. It was a blast! He is a very good boy and his first birthday is coming up - Cinco de Mayo!
