There is a car insurance company here Called Geico, their spokes animal for their commercials is a Ghecko.

Awesome pictures. Does he change color at all with temp or surroundings? I know not a cameleon but had to ask.

Ah, that explains it - thanks Chris!

No, he doesn't change colours at all, although his markings have changed dramatically as he's matured.

Charlie has started coming out of the tank on a daily basis now and loves to explore the sofa. If he doesn't get out at his usual time he starts pawing at the glass. Here his is having a wander :)

I've never been much of a reptile person but that is an impressive looking animal. Does he interact much with you?

Thanks Tyyrlym. He never used to tolerate being handled or having anyone too close to him, but recently he's become a lot more tame. He'll sit in my hand or wander about the sofa while I'm watching tv beside him. Last night he climbed up my sleeve and I had a job getting him back down again. All in all he still doesn't like being handled too much although he will let me stroke under his chin.

If I go up to the tank and call his name usually he'll come out of his cave and up to the front of the glass asking out. When I talk to him he looks right up at my face almost as if he can understand what's being said and has a really comical expression.

I'm always quite wary when I'm handling him though - if they get a sudden shock they can drop their tails.

He's a gorgeous little lizard! I think it's really cool that he has a daily stroll around your couch. 8) And it's also neat that he comes when you call him! That's impressive for a reptile.

It's amazing to see how he's grown too. (I looked back at your first pictures.)

Have fun with your handsome little guy! :D

Thanks Lainey :) I think he must like the warmth. It's surprising how cold his little body is to the touch. I love the feel of his little feet on my hands, they're just so cute! :D
