Gizmo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gizmo
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Leopard gecko
Home: Florida, USA
   This is my leopard gecko named Gizmo. I think that Gizmo should be honored because he not like any other gecko - he was actually hand-picked out of all the geckos at an animal show. On my birthday, I got him when he was three months old.

    Gizmo is a chillin' fellow. If you hold him he will lay on his stomach and flatten out for warmth on your hand. His stomach is very cold! We've only had him for a few months so he doesn't come to his name but we're trying to teach him that, He does come to get crickets, though. His favorite game is hide and go seek because whenever he has a good hiding spot I give him a meal worm which he loves! He likes to crawl on the back of your neck, and whenever he sleeps it seems like he has no use of his arms. Gizmo just smiles all the time. We haven't had any trouble caring for him. I'm trying to buy a bigger and better glass aquarium for him but can't afford it yet. He has a nice little cactus and a water dish. He sleeps in a three-story rock cave. The best part about his cage is that he has a Geico fat-head on the back. He just shedded and now he is more colorful than ever!
