    thanks so much guys, you all are amazing! I love all your geckos. Illusion sounds like such a cool gecko. and Firefly certainly sounds like a pretty bad diva.

    I don't think I ever introduced my gecko family here, and this seems like a good opportunity.

    Our first and oldest is Lemon. I'm not sure what morph he is; high yellow? We didn't handle him enough when he was younger, so he hates to be handled, but he's quiet and easygoing as long as he's left in his tank.

    Lemon was our one and only for a while, then we got Oscar and Peaches. They were the same size when we got them—they aren't now! Oscar is a red stripe who may or may not have some giant genes in him; Peaches is a RAPTOR with a few minor birth defects. Her neurology is a bit scrambled, but she's very calm when handled. Oscar barks every time I hold him and tries to climb up my arm.

    Then came Pearl and Dorian. Pearl is a white-and-yellow nova who is also a little weird neurologically (she used to spin in circles when upset and never figured out the whole "pooping in one spot" thing). Dorian is a blizzard. They're both very flighty when handled. Dorian is a climber with a great appetite (despite which he always stays trim).

    Then we got Ebony and Sundae, a wild type and a striped snow bell albino respectively. Ebony had just finished laying eggs when she was sold to us (well, not quite. She laid two more, infertile, eggs after we got her) and we had to be vigilant about making sure she gained weight. She's a sweet, tolerant girl who puts up well with being handled. Sundae is a little more cantankerous, but she has a great appetite (except when ovulating!) and is quite plump.

    We held off for a while on getting more geckos, then the dam broke again with Jasper, who was a rescue through PetSmart and the Animal Welfare Society. As with Lemon, I'm not sure of his morph. He's a sweet boy who doesn't mind handling—also a glutton, and I recently caught him trying to dig his way out of his tank to get at Peaches.

    Recently we got Signy, and then more recently Cookie, who is the only non-leopard gecko in the family. Cookie is a baby African fat tail, oreo whiteout patternless. She's absolutely adorable and sweet, though shy, and adjusting to her different needs has been a learning experience for me. Signy came from a group of sellers who had no idea of her morph, but I think she's a mack snow. She also seems to have come with worms (), which we're in the process of getting rid of. The worms make her a little cranky.

    Pictures (I don't have good ones of everyone!):

    I love your gecko, and I love learning about her, she sounds like she is happy and healthy in her new home.

    have you thought of any names?
    Hey, no problem, it's fun sharing! Sorry it took me a while to respond, I haven't been on the desktop site in a while and I was having troubles logging into the mobile one. Anyway! She does seem happy and healthy, it's almost been two months I've had her now. Recently she's taken to climbing out of her cage and into my hand when I open up her enclosure to feed her or clean, it's really adorable. She doesn't seem to mind being held, but she definitely prefers exploring .. I let her out onto my bed or on the couch and she will roam all over, slowly and methodically. I even put out an extra cave for her but she seems to prefer roaming around instead of hiding when she's out. I usually take her out every day or every other day for five to ten minutes, how about you? She's my first leo so I don't want to take her out too much and stress her.

    I haven't thought of any names that I want to stick with yet, but another user on here suggested Penny, because she cost me a pretty penny. I like that one. I also thought of Sacagawea because she is such an avid explorer, but for now I just call her "buddy." That's what I call all my pets, actually; I'm too indecisive for names so far.

    I exactly know what you are talking about when you say your indescicive, It is so hard naming them, you think of one and than your like "nah, thats to common" or "no, thats to long" I spent pretty much the whole drive home, thinking up names.

    with the handling I really let him decide, I'll stick my hand in and if he wants out he will just climb on, allthough sometimes I will just get him out for a few minutes if I feel like it.

    thanks for answering!
