    Picked up this cute little boy from Rusty Miller today at Tinley. My husband has taken such a liking to the little guy that I think I'll be getting a few more this year.

    everyone seems to love these. besides the obvious coolness of the cryptic patterning, what else makes these guys so cool?

    I love this species for a lot of reasons, mainly because they are so beautiful and because they are highly personable. I find them to be the most easily handled of the rhac-type geckos. My young nephews come over and immediately ask to hold The Sneetch because they know how mellow she is. She's an adult female, and she just sits on their arms. She'd sit there all day if you let her. We recently did a 6th grade classroom presentation on our geckos, and took our adult male chahoua, Nicodemus. He let about 30 kids hold him without so much as a tail twitch. I didn't think the teacher was going to let me take him back home, she loved him so much. The kids also totally loved the prehensile tail demonstration. Another cool factor on these guys.

    I also find them to be more inquisitive and exciting to watch than the crested geckos. These guys take down prey like it's nobody's business. They are more active and cruise around their enclosures at night when we're in the gecko room feeding or doing whatever.

    I just love everything about them, they are my favorite of all the species. Which is why I have 16 of them.
