There's a Leopard in the House!! Or...Am I Seeing Spots!

A Leopard Gecko that is!

I have the unique privilege of living with a daughter that loves all of God's creatures. Yes, I do mean all. Creepy or not! LOL Insects, tadpoles, snakes, salamanders, fish, spiders....you name it! (And she wants to have all of them live in the house!)

And so, this fella shown above (whose name is Frodo) has his own space in our little house. He has been with us about 3 years I guess. He's quiet (read:doesn't sass ya or keep you awake at night!), moves slow (read:I can out-run it!), and I don't have to feed it (read: eats things that are alive--ewwwwwww) my daughter does! (feeds it I mean--not eats live things) :0)

Oh, and he's friendly and doesn't bite--another bonus!

My daughter took these pictures, and I thought they came out quite well, so I thought I'd introduce you to one of her menagerie!

(Doesn't he look like he's smiling in the pic above!?)
