Butler the leopard gecko is a total ham! He’s learned that the more he begs, the more likely I am to give in and toss him some goodies. He loves to climb, and the colors on his back continue to change over time. He’s a very long and chunky gecko, and his size is impressive in person.

He was rescued from an ad on Facebook along with Belle in August of 2015. As you can see in the early photos, he was underweight and had the start of metabolic bone disorder. They had been housed together in a dirty tank filled with reptibark. The two of them were under a year old and she had been producing eggs for several months, resulting in the birth of their daughter Bennet. However, with a few months of good food and proper supplementation they both made a full recovery. He started at 50 grams and is now 90 grams.
