Description

These geckos have been housed together ever since I got them. I would like to have them adopted together. I will only let them go to somebody who knows about the needs of these beautiful creatures. They have lived long healthy lives because I have given them the right environment, lots and lots of crickets, and even though they are friendly, I have not handled them very much to avoid stressing them.
