Hello! My name is Cheeta and I am looking for a new family - could it be you?
I am a pretty happy little lizard and like to relax and chill with my family. If cared for right, I can live up to 20 years and grow as long as 10 inches! I may be a small lizard but I'm a big commitment.
Unlike other geckos, I don’t have sticky fingers to climb up walls. I am fairly delicate but hardy so I can be handled gently, though if scared I can drop my tail. This means I lose my fat reserves. It will grow back but it's better if I never lose it in the first place. A fat tail means that I am healthy!
I am nocturnal so I like to eat and socialize in the evening with my people. I am also an insectivore, which means I love eating a variety of bugs! Most important, I need to be housed all by myself. My breed does not cohabitate, even if another gecko is the opposite gender. It’s a no-no!
I was brought to the shelter for emergency boarding and unfortunately, my family was not able to reclaim me. That's okay, I am in the loving care of the rescue and ready for my forever home. Maybe with you?
