Today our beautiful leopard gecko Aurora turned 9 years old!
Since we lost Barnaby, Aurora is now officially our oldest pet. Unfortunately there's not really too much you can do to celebrate a little lizard's birthday, especially when the little lizard is already as spoiled as Aurora is. ...continue reading "Happy 9th Hatch Day, Aurora!"
Tomorrow is my birthday. I worked last weekend so that I could have an extra long weekend this week. Who wants to work on their birthday? But my birthday is Thursday, and I didn't really want to take Thursday off then work Friday - so a 4 day weekend it is! ...continue reading "Not So Photogenic"

Some people say the average is only between 6 and 10 years, but other sources say, if well cared for, between 10 and 20 years is a good estimate. Quite a range right? The oldest leopard gecko on record, at least that I know of, passed away at the ripe old age of 32! ...continue reading "Happy 8th Hatch Day, Aurora!"
