||Six months old|
||Hoorn, The Netherlands|
is Eblis (the name is also the name of a demon/fallen angel, it also
means 'despair'). She is a little baby crested gecko. She hatched on the 6th
of August, so she's now six months old. She's a crested gecko, and her color
morph is called 'flame.'
She is just a cutie! She is still young and somewhat afraid of me, and all
she does is jump around when I take her out of her cage, but I hope in the
future she will calm down a bit.
Crested geckos are hard to find in the wild. They only live on a little piece
on a little island next to Australia (New Caledonia) and nowhere else. First
people thought they were extinct, but they got rediscovered in 1994. I'm glad
they are so popular to keep as a pet, because they are such beautiful and
wonderful creatures, and that way we can make sure they don't go extinct.
They aren't that hard to take care of, either. They eat all kinds of insects
and Crested Gecko Diet, that stuff smells like rotten fruit, yummy (to her
anyway)! I do love her just the way she is!
