||Five years old|
and Nina are my Leopard Gecko girls, they are both five years old. Luna
and Nina may look similar, but their personalities couldn't be more
different. Nina is the slightly smaller of the two, she is very sweet and
carefree. She quite likes being handled and enjoys a gentle back rub. Luna,
on the other hand, is really uncomfortable with being handled, so we usually
leave her be. Luna is quite grumpy and is the better hunter, but that doesn't
stop Nina from standing on her back to get to the top of the rock. They both
love to nom on crickets and the occasional waxworm. They can also be very
amusing to watch, which is good because they can live for over twenty years
so they won't be moving out anytime soon!
They are both quite independent but Nina is happy to crawl on you and lick
your hand. They don't really do tricks but they are quite crafty when
feeding, they wiggle their tail to distract the cricket then pounce from the
other side. Neither of them make any noise but are both very curious about
everything, Nina sometimes likes to sit on me and watch TV. They both have a
favorite spot in their vivarium, Nina likes to poke her head out of a little
hole on their climbing rock whilst Luna likes to lay in a crevice underneath.
