How many of you remember this guy?! It’s been a while since I’ve updated you guys about him. If you’ll recall when he arrived here with us he had a horrible infection and we didn’t think he was going to make it. He’s now completely healed, gaining weight, and living his best life. 🌿 I had held off on naming him since we didn’t know if he was going to survive. Now that he’s thriving he needs a special name. I’m sure many of you have noticed my “nature name” theme. Any ideas? 🌿 Facts: He is a Uroplatus Fimbriatus or commonly known as a leaf tailed gecko. They are native to Madagascar, but due to habitat loss are struggling in the wild. We are hoping to add a female to our family soon to work on helping conserve this sensitive species.

Pierre (Madagascar is francophone and Pierre means rock in French) he seems as strong as a rock, having survived through such an ordeal.

Name him Gator bc he looks like a little alligator

“Rocky” since he’s tough & he’s rocking the camo look!

you shouldn’t hold leaf geckos, it isn’t good for their health.
