I think you're already on the right track -- if you're not going to get a snake (my NEW passion
), then go with a leo (my first passion) -- they're great
Very forgiving in their care, laid back, and ever so cute
Plus when you tell people that you have a gecko, it doesn't seem to freak them out nearly as much as other reptiles -- LOL
Don't know why, but somehow people don't seem to think of geckos as reptiles really... maybe it's all those cute Telus ads
. Hey, think we could convince telus to use a snake in an ad?? Maybe that would cure some people of their stupid phobias... hehe...
