    Esmeralda - Bayonnaise Leachie

    You Guys,

    I have been indoctrinated into the reptile owner's club... or at least that is what my fiancee says. He has been a reptile owner for many years, and I have had a group, a pack, a clutch??? of reptiles that have moved in with him 2 years ago.

    But never one for my own.... and actually although I have owned 3 dogs, I have never even picked a pet for my own.

    Until last weekend, when we went to the White Plains Reptile Expo, and I saw a reptile that I just really was intrigued by. A Leachie Gecko. (Please be kind if I get the terminology wrong. I am still learning!). We ended up holding several and I just really fell in love with this one little girl...

    Next thing I know, we've got a cage, a lizard (gecko?) and a whole bunch of other stuff. So without further adieu, I introduce:

    ESMERALDA - or Ezzy for short.

    Very cool new addition! Be warned, reptiles tend to be addictive.

    So Dakski has told me I should have included some stats...

    Esmeralda is about 4-5 years old, and she is 185 grams! I'm not sure what else to write about her... LOL. How about some more pictures?

    [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

    Is this normal behavior, or have I broken her already?
