is special because he's our first leopard gecko. We went to a
reptile show in April 2007, not expecting to buy anything, but my
husband told me I could choose between a bearded dragon and a leopard
gecko. There weren't too many left by that point, but when I saw him
and held him, I knew I wanted him. He's been a great first gecko. So
much so, that we got another one within two months. In this picture, he's
relaxing in his hammock.
Sammy's been a challenge to tame, but he now sits with us and crawls
over us while we watch tv. He's very photogenic as well. He's got two
rows of dots down his back that look like tire tracks. I think he'd
make a good daddy in the future, too. Even the vet said he was a really
good-looking gecko - and as a vet has seen a lot! Of course we agreed!
Every night, when he's out hunting his crickets, he stands on top of one
of his houses and surveys his tank like he's the king of the hill. We
love him to death.
