||Two years old|

is Enrique. He is special because my husband gave him to me for
Enrique is very social. His favorite pass time is sitting on my
shoulder while I watch television or work on to computer. He hates
being outside. For some reason it scares him. He has never made any
sound at all except when I took him to the mail box once and he freaked
out and made a chirping sound. If you stick your tongue out at him he
sticks his out in return. He used to enjoy catching live crickets. His
tail would spin in a circle before he would pounce. Now he is lazy and
prefers canned crickets. He will let a live one drown in his water
dish. He is our baby. He is one of my favorite Christmas presents
ever. My favorite thing about him is the way he "smiles" at people. It
makes me laugh. That is why I like this picture so much. People are
always afraid that he will bite like a snake. He has never even offered
to nip at anyone and besides that geckos do not have teeth. He sheds
his skin about once every three weeks. When he does he eats it so that
there is never a mess in his cage. Each time he sheds, his color
becomes brighter. He has recently developed orange spots on his tail.
He is very clean. He only uses the bathroom in one corner and he never
makes a mess!
