Oltenia, the Pet of the Day
Name: Oltenia
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Leopard Gecko
Home: Southampton, England, UK
   Oltenia is a rescue leopard gecko, who had a pretty tough life before I got her, she had scars covering her body from older and larger animals bullying her and a male trying to bred with her. She also has a genetic defect known as Enigma syndrome which effects the animals balance and causes the animals to walk around in circles. It's a genetic defect which can cause geckos to be unable to breed, they walk around in circles and generally messes up their balance, so they can't aim well when hunting. She sometimes "loses" her food that way, but if I wait, she will find it again.

    Oltenia does circle when stressed out and had a number of problems with shedding due to not having a moist cave hide when we got her, she has now recovered from all of her injuries and is now living a happy and healthy life with me and my fiancé, she is sweet little girl who loves cuddles and has such a loving nature despite what she's been through. We love her a lot.
