G is for Gecko

A tragedy has occurred today.  My leopard gecko has died... so I wanted to make today a tribute for my gecko.  I got it about a year ago from a website and it was a trouble maker.  When I let it on my bed it would try to escape by climbing off the edge and falling to the ground.  She was a handful but she had loads of energy.  The reason to her death remains a mystery to me.  But she was really skinny and had laid an egg, but I still can't confirm whether or not that was the main cause.  I'm feeling a mixture of guilt and disappointment.  I had such a busy week that I failed to notice my pets.  I take this as a lesson to pay closer attention to my pets.  So here is a tribute to her.

She's the yellow one on the left.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your gecko :( I used to have a collared lizard and a bearded dragon along with a couple iguanas and scorpions. They are fun to watch.

  2. I'm sorry to hear about your gecko. She was a beauty.
    I had a gecko years ago. He escaped about an hour after we got him home and we found him 2 days later on the door. He blended right in, we must have walked by him a hundred times.
    We also had an iguana, Lizzy, for years. Then 2 more iguanas, Daisy and Tim and an anole.

    1. Yeah that happened to my other gecko (spotted one). It escaped -_-, but we found it days later. An anole? Never heard of those!
