    Ah~~
    This is something I've always found really funny - the different personalities!

    Donut is our oldest and largest and by far the most docile. He's quite grumpy and doesn't like being woken up but he's also the most social one. He's a little rascal - he always picks a spot he knows he's not allowed to wander into and then tries over and over and over even though I remove him every single time >:3 He's the kind of gecko who'll come up to the glass and beg to come out when you talk to him. Because he's so calm, he's great when kids wanna see the geckos and it's really easy to tell when he gets mad - he starts making little grumbly-noises that are super-cute!

    Eclair is a major weirdo. She has on and off periods - off being her not wanting to even look at us, on being wanting to come out like 4 times a day and scratching the glass all the time. When she's out, she's the polar opposite from Donut. She does not want to explore on her own, her favourite thing to do is climb on people! A lot of the time when she wants to come out, I'll just put her on my shoulder and do stuff around the house while she crawls around on me.

    Sanjay is the biggest love. He is very adventurous, and loves to explore. He has always been very calm, and is very cooperative with me when he is being handled (when he has stuck shed that needs to be removed, if he needs to be given meds, etc). He is also very gentle-he has never bitten me, and on the occasions I have hand fed him, he is very careful not to bite me by mistake. If I am wearing a jacket or hoodie that he can nestle himself in, he never fails to snuggle with me. I love him so much <3

    I have to add this little story.

    We've been rather busy lately so Donut hadn't been out to play in 3-4 days. Usually he comes out about every other night (or more). We finally had some time to hang out with him, so I got him out. I expected him to do his usual stuff - investigate, try to get to places he's not allowed, bother the cat - but instead he lay on my leg while I scratched his neck. After about 20 minutes, I put him back in.

    Then he starts acting weird. He follows us back and forth when we pass the tank, when my boyfriend changed his water, he came over, crawled up on his cold hide and stared at him. About 1 hour later, I pass the tank and I see that he has kicked literally all the eco earth out of his hide and he's sitting next to it, staring at me. He's thrown a tantrum because I put him back in. I get my boyfriend to hang out with him some more while I do other stuff. About 10 minutes later, he puts Donut back into his tank (I've put all the eco earth back into the hide and misted it). Donut goes back into his moist hide, all is good.

    The next morning I get up and realise he's kicked more eco earth out of his hide. Why? Because he was still salty about being alone for a couple of days. PHOTO
