He is a leopard gecko.
I have had him for about 8 years now, but we think he is almost 10.
Since leopard geckos are nocturnal, there isn't much activity going on in the day.
My students love having him in the room, but don't get a chance to see him too often.
Well, this past summer I found this awesome magnetic rock.
Now the children can see him anytime during the day.
We are obviously going to have to set guidelines though.
I'm sure Geico wouldn't appreciate an "Open House" being scheduled every 5 mintues. :)
