Geckos!

I was looking at the pets on Craigslist yesterday, hoping to maybe find a dog, and I came across 2 geckos being given away for FREE!  I immediately emailed, and it turned out the guy lived like up the street from me (practically).  So I hurried over, and am the proud new owner of 2 geckos, Chip and Dale :)

This is Dale, the bigger of the two.

This is Chip, he is smaller and kinda crooked lol

This picture shows Chip's face better, but is kinda dark.

They're too cute, I'm so excited! :)

Are you nuts girl? Can they fetch? Do the sit? Can they roll over? What are you going to do with them? If you want gecko's I can catch plenty over here and mail 'em to ya...oops wait, they might have to go through state health inspection. Bad idea I suppose. I never figured you as a gecko girl. :)

Crap...I hit publish too soon. I love their names. Clever on your part. Do they stay? How do you clean their liter box? LOL

Very cool--I heard that geckos are good luck (or maybe my mom made that up because she grew up in Hawaii and there were always a ton of geckos?)

We have reptiles too, all rescues. It seems that people buy them when they are little and cute, and when they grow up they give them up! At least that's what happened with ours.
Thanks for taking them in, I am sure they are grateful;)

I admire your spontaneity! I don't think I'd be brave enough to adopt a couple of lizards that I didn't know anything about (I'm assuming you had no prior gecko experience). How are they now?

They strike me as low maintenance pets - like @Apples and Autobots would like to know how they're doing now. Visiting from Blog Gems.
