Hello! My name is Star because I shine so bright!

I am a great eater and I am very easy to handle. I enjoy going to adoption events to be handled.

So a little more 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 habitat all by myself. We do not cohabitate, even if another gecko is the opposite gender. It’s a no-no!

I came into the shelter small, sick, and starving so they asked the good people at SBRSC to care for me. It took a long time to get me back to a healthy state but I am doing fine now and my colors are even starting to show again!

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and an adoption counselor will reach back out to you!
