    Default Meet Alastor! (And me!)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello, all!

    Before I tell you about my gecko, let me get the boring human stuff out of the way (otherwise, you'd stop reading after the gecko!) I am 22, an assistant manager at Yankee Candle, and an avid lover of books, MMOs, my boyfriend, and animals! I have:

    A cat (torti, named Autumn)
    Two rabbits (a Dutch named Hermione and a lionhead named Sybill)
    A bearded dragon (Norbert)
    A Berber skink (Neville)
    A Russian tortoise (Ollivander)
    Two tarantulas (Galadriel (Arizona desert blond) and Tauriel (Mexican fireleg))
    A 55 gallon aquarium (Freshwater, assorted)
    A 5.5 gallon aquarium with a betta fish I adopted for hospice care. Her name is Hildegarde and she has extreme impaction.

    And, of course, a pink leopard gecko named Alastor! Alastor is sort of special to me... I recently had to have my royal python, Nagini, put to sleep, only a week after I lost my parakeet Flitwick to a neurological condition. That same day, I went to PetSmart to get supplies for the other babies, and was looking wistfully at the snakes. One of the associates said, "We have one free to a good home in the back! He's got a great personality." Well, I thought she was talking about pythons, and (as I used to work there) I know they'll adopt animals out for free if they have a birth defect or something.

    Well, I was expecting a python, but she came out with this teensy little wiggly pink thing. She thought I was looking at the leopard geckos in the next tank over! Well, this little baby was picked on by the other geckos, and they bit the toes of his right rear foot off, and he dropped his tail. He's regrowing the tail, but of course the toes are gone. He's absolutely precious, a tiny little baby, and he doesn't let his disability slow him down!

    I took him, of course, and he's in Nagini's old tank. Absolutely spoiled, just like the rest of them. He's super cute, and his personality is just fantastic.

    Welcome to you and Alastor! What a zoo you have!!!

    Be sure to quarantine your rescued leo for 90 days or so hopefully in a room separate from your other critters. Feed and handle him last. Sometimes rescued leos might have certain problems that are contagious.

    You find at the beach

    He's in the same room as my tarantulas and my skink, who is semi-hibernating right now. Cat also has access to the room, but he's up in a bookshelf and can't be touched.

    He's also been thoroughly checked by my veterinarian and given a clean bill of health, besides the obvious. But thank you! <3
