I want to start off this post by apologizing for my recent slacking off of posting. I have had a couple weeks of bad day after bad day. And I’m a real person and so this is really hitting me hard making me unmotivated to post. Along with that not posting is making me upset and feel bad because i’m slacking so that makes me more upset and it's a bad spiral.
So with that said, i’m hoping to turn things around and work on my blog again.
While I’ve been absent, I’ve found a new passion. Geckos. Crested geckos to be exact. They are the most adorable things ever and I am completely obsessed with them. Over the course of two weeks, I went from owning just one tiny baby gecko to owning six geckos. Yes six. I love them all more than anything and am excited to start in my adventures of breeding them.
I don’t have a plan on how this post is going and that seems to be very representative of my life at the moment, so I’m just going to share a brief description of each gecko with a photo gallery and personality traits.
My first crested gecko is Norbert. I brought Norbert home on January 27th. He is 3 months old and tiny. I named him after the dragon Hagrid hatches in Harry Potter. Most crested geckos have tails, but he lost his as a hatchling so he is tailless. He is a sweet little thing and loves to just chill on my hand or perched on my finger tips.
Just a couple days later I brought home Sunflower. I took a tipsy trip to petco with Amanda and ended up coming home with her. She’s got some beautiful spots and she does have a tail. She’s still a baby, I’m guessing around 6 months old. She’s a very jumpy gecko and loves to jump right out of my hands and scare me to death.
Then just on Saturday, I found an ad on KSL for a breeding group of crested geckos. It was an amazing deal price wise and I could not pass it up. I ended up bringing home three adult females and one adult male. I am so in love with this group. Each gecko is so unique and has such different colorings from each other. As a extra surprise I found out that one of the females was already gravid (aka pregnant). So within the next month I’ll have some gecko eggs.
Saturn is the male and has some amazing coloring to him. He’s pretty laid back, but really loves to be held by me.
Zoey is the female that is pregnant. It’s hard to tell if she’s so relaxed because she is pregnant or if it’s really her personality. But she’s a sweetheart.
Jade is a beautiful female and is super active. She loves to climb up arms and get as high as possible.
Hazel is a super unique female. She’s called a patternless and turns a really dark brown color which is pretty rare. She’s also a very very jumpy girl. She has taken many scary dives to the floor.
These geckos have become the center of my life and I adore them so much. I am so obsessed and you’ll get to hear about them a lot.
