We got to hear some really interesting herp stories at my "retirement" party a week ago. My bosses' wife has 3 grown children & she was telling us about their various pets when they were younger. They had an iguana for maybe 10 years. She said the kids loved this pet, but she was the one that got to make the darn lizard its salad! She put the iguana in an outside pen thinking it would be ok. Well, something happened & the kids were devastated. Someone gave them a gecko. She said -"DON'T ever get a gecko!" She said it would scream. My wide-eyed Riley asked - "Screamed? Like how?" She said "That lizard was evil. (Riley's eyes are getting wider) It would laugh like an evil witches' laugh." She told us that it would bite all of them & they were all afraid of it. It was just crazy acting. They finally moved it to the basement because it would wake them up in the night with this scary "laugh". They were terrified of this gecko. They were even afraid to go to the basement after this. She said the gecko was "pure evil". We are all cracking up, but then we are all thinking - "And we want one of these?" We asked what kind of gecko it was, but she didn't know. Believe it or not, the boys still want a gecko. They think maybe this was a tokay. Anyone experience "evil witch gecko laughs"?
