Our new additions

We have four new 'babies' in the house - two green anoles and to BEAUTIFUL leopard geckos!
The geckos are a 'pair' - a female and male. Maybe we'll have babies one day!

I started out with the freshly cleaned 20 gallon hex tank Scott freed up when he got his new 55 gallon long:

Then I added in my reptile carpet and habitat 'fixins' :) I like to call that my pot plant in the background. I don't know what it's supposed to be (it's a silk hanging terrarium plant), but they look suspiciously like pot leaves to me!

First, a rather grainy shot of my gecko pair together:

Here is the girl:

Here is my boy:

And here are the anoles by themselves:

Matthew is absolutely FASCINATED with the lizards. He's been calling the anoles the 'green ones' and the geckos the 'brown ones'. I knew it was only a matter of time, however... Matthew was watching and suddenly yelled that he found a brown one with NO SPOTS!!!! One of the anoles had climbed out of the leaves and went down to the warming rock, so he turned brown. Matthew didn't believe me when I told him they change colors based on their surroundings *laugh*

The geckos are really sweet, and seem to be adjusting to their surroundings nicely. They have all eaten, I believe, when I put some crickets in earlier.

We haven't thought up names yet. Any ideas?
