Freckles In December


I was with the ogre when we decided to go all out and take some rad pictures.
I look a lot better than him in that dumb blue shirt, but don't let him know... He might get jealous and sick Gexamillion on me (just saying).

New Exo Terra

The ogre is back! This time, he's switched everything up!

I am not sure how I feel about my new home, and the ogre didn't help either. He kept trying to grab me. I wanted him to leave me alone! Bad enough he is always looking at me and invading my privacy.

Freckles, gecko on the loose

Hello folks.

You may remember me as the compassionate yet ever cute freckles, the
crested gecko. If not here is a recent picture:

I recently joined some crested gecko forums online. The community of people there is amazing, and they have a very diverse set of geckos. I would recommend anyone who wants a gecko to ask questions there first, because those people now what they are talking about.

Now, let me upload some more pictures of myself before the ogre wakes up. That lazy bum...

Now these first two photos are really strange. It looks like I have a band of lighter color running along my midsections perpendicular to my orientation. I have only shown these colors a few times while sleeping. That is because the dumb ogre keeps waking me up. I am trying to tell him to leave me alone, but he doesn't speak geckonese.
Now this picture is better! You can clearly see the design on my back, my spots, and my beautiful tail! But how horrible it is that they caught me in such a compromising position! I get not privacy at all!! NONE!
This final photo is by far the most telling. It is an artists rendition of my figure! It was created on an iphone using a free app called Glowing Art. Needless to say, I am a bit insulted. If an artist is going to draw me with his fingers on an iphone, he should at least have the decency to get an app that costs money!

OH SNAP, the ogre just came back from taking pictures of his dumb lilies. I gotta run. See ya next time!

Freckles Approves of Orchid!

So Freckles the crested gecko has recently approved of my newly acquired orchid. I would've never approved of it. But of course, I am only a big fat Golden Gecko. I had a photo shoot recently, and I will post pictures soon, but this Freckles video trumps that, so the photos will have to wait.

Here it is:

Freckles Give El Presidente A Shout Out

Thank God for Freckles. Now I ain't a religious gecko, but ever since freckles came along, the big ogre has been bothering me less and less.

As a matter of fact, he doesn't even try to hold me anymore, he just plays with his other gecko, Freckles. I think the Ogre and Freckles are friends on facebook, because they made a video together, and Freckles gave a shout out to the president of Alianza Latina!

I know, it's amazing.

Anyway, I gotta go chase some crickets, enjoy the video!

Freckles, The Gecko

There is a new Gecko, Freckles, the Crested Gecko.

He arrived in Tankville a few weeks ago. He seems nice, but I don't like him. I keep wondering if he is going to eat my crickets. But there is one good thing to come out of this. The ogre has decided to leave me alone for a while. He is taking a liking to Freckles. I managed to snap a few shots.

Pretty soon there will be more to come, I hope.

Stickin' It To The Gecko

I love my new Tankville! I love to climb around. I wish there were more things to climb on. Anyway, I was on a stick last night, and I just wanted to hang out on that stick all day! It was so much fun. I love that stick!

Here is a video:

Feel the Heat, Eat the Food

Oh, it is not easy being green. Or greener for that matter. I was beginning to lose my color, but the heat was good for my skin. I recently shed again. It is like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. Shedding does wonders for my complexion.

I was hungry for a few days, but then a few crickets started jumping around my tank. I quickly ate them (yum yum). They were tasty. I even dared to eat a meal worm I found under my foot. The workout (from the hunt) was good too. I don't like moving around much. I prefer loafing around on my rock sunbathing in the heat lamp.

But now that I have a glass tankville, as opposed to my previous plastic one, I am a lot happier. I love to show off my climbing skills by effortlessly hanging out on the side of the tank, close to the heater. I am good. And he has made up for his invasion of privacy.

Gex Meets, and falls in love with, THE ROCK!!!

I love my new rock! It appeared in the new tankville and it is here in the far corner of the land. I wasn't sure about my tank until later in the day, when I first climbed on the rock. It was so cool. I got a good view of some bugs, but I was not hungry.

There is also a cool new lamp above my tank. It is nice and warm. During the day the light is bright, and it bothers me. I think I will go under the plant and go to bed at those times. But at night it is red and warm. I like to sunbathe on the new rock. Works wonders for my skin.

The ogre is the only problem. He bugs me too much. Earlier today we took his ipod and was pointing it at me. After he fell asleep I connected it to itunes, and here is what I found:

What a shameful invasion of privacy. He better make it up to me sometime soon.

Hide and Seek

He found me! Last night while the ogre was away, I decided to play a game of hide and seek. It was fun. Because of all the wood in my tank, I felt a bit more comfortable walking around. I walked from one corner of tankville to the other one.

The other corner was very different. Instead of a nice hot rock, where I can loaf around and spend my free time, there was a plant, and it was just my color. I decided to stay there for a while. I liked my new hiding spot. Especially during the day.

But this afternoon, when the grumpy ogre came back from work, he found me in my hiding spot. He put me in a small container, and he moved me to T2 (tankville 2). This tankville was bigger, and had 2 rocks, and all my favorite pieces of wood. It was a bit wet though, as if it had just rained.

I don't like it much, so I think I will just stay away in the far corner until I get more comfortable. Maybe when the ogre leaves I will explore some more, but it is not likely.

Gex from the Bronx

I Got Some Wood!

I have been hanging out where I feel most comfortable here in tankville. My rock. It is just a normal rock, big enough for me to sit on, but not too big to walk around in.

I noticed many worms in my tank too, but I think I wont eat them. I prefer the taste of fresh crickets chirping as the sun goes down. No crickets have crossed my path recently. Hopefully this changes.

But today there was a slightly pleasant surprise. There were many pieces of wood around my tank. I haven't tried to climb them yet, but I might later tonight. For now I will just hang out on my warm rock... My warm rock...
