My bumpy little friend

Leopard geckos vs Bearded Dragons! How does one choose?! To be honest.... I will always choose the Bearded Dragon, though my initial reason was a silly reason.... for years the bumps on a leopard gecko really creeped me out. Jim and the rest of his leopard gecko friends were my moms pets because I didn't like the idea of touching them. But even though I didn't want to touch them, I still thought they were super cute!! I've never seen another reptile that can smile like leopard geckos!! It's so cute!!!

I eventually got over my weird fear of their bumps and once I did I was able to fully experience what an adorable little pet these guys are. They don't need a lot from you as a pet, require one of the smaller enclosures and their diet is easy to manage. They do require a heat source, and a little house to hang out in but neither are anything elaborate.

Their temperaments are usually very easy going though some of ours were occasionally shy, very rarely did one have a naturally bad attitude. They're great with kids, we never had one get sick and also never had a tail fall off. They're a great family pet and very hearty so they're great for less experienced pet owners who are ready to branch into reptiles.
