    Hey All, my name is Shannon. I am a new owner of a Gargoyle Gecko (Squiggs) I found this site a few days ago when looking for a community that shared interest in the reptile world. I had made one post and had a great response. Mary was very helpful in pointing my thread toward the right people. So far everyone has been very friendly. I live in Colorado and have a 4 yr old daughter, (Squiggs is HER first pet). We also have two dogs. An American Bulldog and an English Mastiff. I grew up mostly with dogs and had an iguana at one point, along with a pig, a rooster, guieni pigs, rabbits, hamsters, an so on an so forth. Since I have gotten Squiggs I have definately become more knowledgable about the care of these guys. Its a lot more than expected but they are not high maintanence. I really think I am going to enjoy this new little guy/girl. Any advice is always going to be helpful so if any one out there comes across new info or something they think is helpful I am open.

    Thanks and Hello!

    Yes I have some photos on the a thread about my Geckos tail. I also have some photos up in my album as well! Great looking Gecko. Its colors darken at night and during the day Squiggs is almost white with a red hue and the stripes are almost invisible

    I know what you mean about having to do a ton of research! It is crazy how anybody can just walk in & buy any reptile in a pet store & they just hand it over without either telling you anything or giving you the wrong info! I bought a Ball Python & it came with a 29 gallon tank & tiny under the tank heater. Poor thing didn't eat for 6 weeks because I had soooo much stuff to figure out & get just right! I spent hours & hours researching & reading stuff here & he/she is now doing awesome!

    Minimum wage is not the proper incentive for employees to make sure they have their facts right, nor is the pet trade (On a large scale) interested in anything but business. Beautiful gargoyle gecko by the way. Incredible pattern and absolutely stunning.
