June, the Pet of the Day
Name: June
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: New Caledonian Crested Gecko
Home: Williamston, Michigan, USA
   June is a Dark Flame pattern Crested Gecko. She came from the same breeder as my male geckos Raptor and Nimrod, and was a prize from a contest I entered on the breeder's site.

    Like my male gecko Raptor, she's a bit on the heavy side, but not nearly as big as him, but she is a female, after all. During the day, her pattern is quite faded and dull (resting colors), but at night she "fires up" to this beautiful dark color along her sides and legs, with a lovely cream contrast running from her head to tail.

    June is my most talkative of the bunch. When I reach for her, she lets me know that she's not happy about being taken out of her tank. Their sounds range from a squawking sound (like wet fingers on glass) to a chirp that sounds like a bird. But like most of the others, she calms down once held and scratched behind the ears. So she is friendly, once she has adjusted to the transition!

    June has never been bred, but I'm sure her babies would be very cute!
