I got her!

I picked up my new Leopard Gecko, Gaia, today!
She is SOOOOOOOOO CUTE!!!! I love her. She is smaller than I thought she would be and is so freaking adorable!
When I met up with her breeder she came into my vehicle and talked to me and explained things for a bit and I held my new little girl the whole time and she's such a little sweety.

I will have to get you guys some photos in a little bit!

I think I'm in love!!

Here are some pictures I took of her on the bed! She kept moving so it was hard to get her in focus, lol.

They are pretty small when they are young yep, but Females can get up to 8 inches long and males 10 inches or more. So not too small.
I seriously love her already!

I love all the green and brown anoles you see! Especially when they're doing their threat display to other males. Very pretty!

I never wanted a Gecko before because I thought they were boring pets since the ones in the pet stores were always sleeping or hiding. Boy was I proven wrong! When I met a friend of mine's Leopard Gecko and she BEGGED to be let out of her tank and she was so sweet. Want one ever since! You should get one.

Anoles are pretty! I love Chameleons too! I just don't know if I would want a pet that is more look and don't touch. :P

Thank-youu! Haha, that's funny. :P You shouldn't be afraid of them, you are so much bigger!! Although I guess it's the same with spiders, you can just squish them but I'm terrified of them!

Lol, really?!?!?! They creep me out and I'm terrified of them! If they are TINY TINY TINY baby spiders and there is only one or two then I'm usually fine but if they are adults or there are a ton of babies all in one place I run, hahahaha.
