Crested Gecko

By Louise_Morris  
This is another image of the Crested Gecko but this time before he had shed his skin. You can see how his skin appears "too big for him" and where his skin has started to peel by his nose. He was a smashing little creature and the skin shedding was really interesting to witness - even though Angi gave a helping hand to him. You do have to be careful though because if he had felt threatened he would have shed his complete tail too as a kind of defence mechanism.

Thanks for the votes & comments on last nights Milk Frog - appreciate them all. Still just voting mainly I'm afraid - time time time!!!

Take care, Lou
