Speckles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Speckles
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Crested gecko
Home: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
   This is Speckles. He is a male Crested gecko and is now five years old. Speckles is a very special member of our family as he helps me share the joy of keeping geckos with many, many other people. You see, Speckles goes to all the reptile shows we do, for our business Supreme Gecko and he has been held by several hundred people, many handling a reptile for their very first time.

    One time every show, someone walks up to our table that has never held a reptile before. Before they leave they willingly hold Speckles. If you could see the look in even one of these folk's eyes. That's what it is all about and Speckles is the one that has made it happen.

    Other than 'Stay!' he doesn't know any tricks, but he doesn't need to. Speckles doesn't greet me at the door when I come home at night like a dog or cat might, but he does enjoy being held and going to the shows. He certainly is very social though as he climbs from customer's hand to customer's hand at shows, all very happily.
