Default my gorgeous rescued helmeted gecko

had a very exciting day today, went to the reptile rescue based at brighton RSPCA to view this gorgeous little gecko after receiving a message from keith who runs the rescue. after a hair raising drive in my little ole classic mini in the rain & snow, with big lorries causing so much spray the wipers were working overtime! missed my turning, even though been passed there plenty of times my daughter & i eventually arrived
my first sighting i got of this little tiny gecko (touching 2 1/2 inches), was him curled up next to a piece of wood, fast asleep, he made my heart melt my mind was made up at that moment but none the less, still had a look at all the other lovely reps needing homes...so tempting
so home he came with me, heres a few pics:

cant think of a name yet (think male)

such an angry expression,lol






will try get some better pics, cant work out how to make them larger!!

I LOVE Helmeted Geckos but cant seem to find them for sale anywhere! They are so gorgeous and can imagine them to have tons of personality and attitude. They always look pissed off lol. Im jealous!

Yeah definitely keep me updated if you see some going for sale. Ive got a thing for helmeted/gargoyle geckos lately. Just try and persist with the handeling and he should calm down. Too adorable!
