Geico, that is.
He's supposed to be nocturnal... but as of 1:30 this afternoon, he had still not gone to bed. Every time I walked past his cage, he would attack the side of the cage.
Ever since he bit me the first couple of times... I've kept a glove next to the cage, in case I want to handle him when he's acting sassy. So today I put on the glove and reached for him.
He actually hung onto my gloved finger while I went and got the camera, then took him into the kitchen where the light is best for shooting pictures.
After several minutes of trying to bite through my finger, he finally figured out he wasn't getting anywhere and tried to let go. Then he discovered that gecko teeth get caught on yarn:
Finally he got himself disentangled and slumped onto my hand for a well-deserved rest.
I put him back in his cage, and he didn't try anything else. I hope he has finally figured out that it's waaaay past his bedtime.
What a goofball.
Firefly snaps at the shadows when I walk past her cage, and she has snapped at my fingers a time or two... but as soon as she figures out what she's snapping at is not edible, she lets go immediately and does not try again. Geico... not so bright. I couldn't believe how long he hung onto my finger today!

PBS is running a poll. Very simple question: Do you think Sarah Palin is qualified to be VP of the United States, yes or no?
When I voted, it was running about 60 percent no, 40 percent yes.
You know what to do.
(I have discovered that you can vote more than once.)

... I am now offered a pet nail clipper.
I doubt any of the lizards would sit still to have their nails clipped.
And one of the pet stores is offering a $5 off coupon on my next order.
Really? Gecko-goo costs $3.99. Does this mean they'll give me the gecko-goo and a dollar too? Uh huh. Sure. And I'm Hermione Granger. (I didn't even bother clicking through to see how much I'd have to really spend to get that $5 off.)
In other news... Samantha wants to know why I haven't blogged about Saracuda.
Mostly because practically everyone in my blogroll (that's the links in the right sidebar, for your flatlanders) has commented. Copiously, fervently and eloquently. Rachel has done a great job, as usual, amongst her other usual topics. If you haven't read her, go do so. Immediately. I'll still be here when you get back. I promise. And then click on all the other links in my blogroll.
