Whatever kind of gecko it is, I absolutely LOVE those commercials!!!

About time companies use herps to promote themselves :bounce:

My favorite one is with the girl on the bike and in the park blowing on a pussywillow at the end. First time I saw that one I almost peed my pants laughing!!!

While we're on the topic, there's another commercial with lizards on TV that I'd love to know the species. It's for a cellular phone company "Telus" and it has a bunch of goofy looking lizard running accross the screen to the music "Charriots of fire". Another hilarious commercial IMO.

Keeper of 5 snakes, leopard geckos, 1 green iguana, 20+ tarantulas, 2 dogs & a bunch of rats!

Pixie, Im pretty sure those lizards on the telus commercial are Double Crested Green Basilisks, or Jesus Lizards lol. The ones that can run across water. Theyre awesome and so is that commercail
Experience is a great advantage. The Problem is that when you get the experience, you're too damned old to do anything about it.

My favorite ads were the Bud-wise-er ones with the frogs! I laughed every time I saw them, especially when the two remaining frogs were interviewing other reptiles and stuff for the part of -er-! Too funny.
