Hi! My name is Lemon Bear!

My previous family took me to a shelter because I was having some trouble with my mouth and eating. After receiving some care there, I was then transferred to the rescue to continue my return to health. I am happy and healthy now and eating like a champ! I am ready to find my forever home!

Fun Fact: Most Leo's have a favorite hide but I love all my hides and I love to explore too!

My foster family says 'Lemon Bear is a real gentleman, with a chill disposition and a beautiful yellow complexion. He is fairly calm with being gently handled and shows curiosity when action is happening around his enclosure - particularly in the evenings and mornings. :-) He is a good eater but prefers to be hand-fed and likes his meals to be wiggling!'

So a little about me, 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, 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 importantly, I need to be house all by myself. We do not cohabitate!
