How Such a Little Gecko Can Change A Lot
By Matthew B
The Braun family’s speedy adorable little pet gecko turns two. He has made quite an impact from all the living food they have to buy him to the amount of cleaning they have to do. This merry day will take place on February 10th at there house. Allison Braun says that “She loves to make sure Leo is happy and healthy”. They love to see Leo grow and handle him.
Leo loves to zip around his tank when Gary Braun first met he couldn’t wait to play with him. Leo was six months old when they first adopted him. They were really nervous about the crickets after a friends cricket terrarium broke loose around there house. They really care about his health when they go on trips they pay a neighbour to feed him and operate his heating. Leo’s length has nearly doubled since they first adopted him. Lucas Braun says “It is so fascinating to watch him stalk insects then leap into action”.
There biggest challenge was learning how to feed him and adapt to the crickets and trying to learn how to use hands instead of pliers. The worst part was when a cricket jumped out and they had to catch it. Lucas thought his mom Allison would get livid and he would get grounded or something.
Leo has been an amazing addition to there family by being handled by everyone to being showed to friends and family. Leo has changed a lot in the Braun house and will keep doing so for the rest of his life.
