I got Howie from my little brother for my birthday, he named him beforehand apparently. He was the first gecko I owned before many others followed, and really what made me fall in love with reptiles in general. Howie had a very relaxed and laid back attitude, I'd take him out quite a bit just to hold and pet him. He'd often just hang out on my desk with me where I made him a special sand bed in a large pet bowl. Howie only stayed with me a year because I was headed off to college and wasn't sure I could take him. So to my younger brother he went, the original purchaser of 9 years old. He had Howie for many years after that, which didn't surprise me. If someone of 9 can care for this amazing creature, than anyone can! I highly recommend as a starter pet into the reptile world.
