Meet Lester. He's our African Fat-Tailed Gecko. He came to us in a funny way. My Honey's co-worker, M., found him in their garage. He asked all the neighbors if they were missing a lizard and found his home. A few days later, Lester was back in M.'s garage.
Since M. knew that we homeschool and have a nice collection of all kinds of creatures, he offered to give him to us. We said yes, of course. Lester has been living in our kitchen ever since.
