Dale, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dale
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Orange Albino Leopard Gecko
Home: Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada
   Dale is a very special lizard to me. I always wanted a lizard and I searched on the Internet for literally almost three months and decided that this was the right kind of lizard for me. I found him in Halifax. Dale had to leave all his cage-mates soon because he was getting older and the males will fight other male geckos. He was different from all the five geckos in the tank. Instead of the stripe going all the way around his body, the stripe stopped and looked like a little circle on his back. It took me eight months to pick out a name for him! After looking in the baby book 100 times I finally decided to name him Dale. I feed him crickets & change his water every single day. He lives in my room in his fifteen gallon tank and it my responsibility to look after him. And I think I do it properly.

    Dale loves to explore and doesn't mind much if I hold him or let him crawl around on the floor. I won't hold him for to long because I love him and I don't want him to be stressed out or anything! When he wants out, he will climb on high places but he's not the best climber...he tries to climb on a toilet paper role and slides of it. I love to watch him eat his crickets! He will walk up high and pounce like a cat. He will shake his tail too when he sees a cricket like an excited dog. I'm glad we adopted him! And I love him very much!
