Medusa, the Pet of the Day
Name: Medusa
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Kind: Tokay Gecko
Home: USA
   Medusa is a wild one. She is about eight inches of pure muscle and extremely fast. This Tokay Gecko is very aggressive yet cohabitates with two leopard toads. She eats around seven crickets every other day. She used to be really stressed out in a ten gallon tank to the point she would bang her nose against the sides of the aquarium. So I've bought a larger aquarium and filled it with lots of plant-life (mostly succulents) and places to hide. She loves plenty of natural light from the windows, lots of heat, and plenty of moisture. She won't allow me to pick her up but I'm hesitant to try because her jaws are extremely strong. When she clamps down, she doesn't let go unless coaxed by a spray of water. So I use gloves to handle her, but i only do so if I have to.
