Reptiles are an addiction

Hi, my name is Katie, and I am a reptile addict...

Seriously, I just got 2 more. Not beardies this time though. This time, I ended up with a pair of leopard geckos.

It was their eyes. Their eyes burned into my soul and haunted me. A few weeks ago, I was at a PetCo, it was night time, and the geckos were awake. I looked into the tank, and a little gecko looked back at me.

I wanted to take it home, but I already had the 3 beardies

Yesterday, I was at PetSmart. I was entertaining the dragons by taking them out into public to meet people - they love that. I asked the girl who works in the reptile and fish department what the geckos feel like, and she opened up the tank and told me to feel for myself. One of the bigger ones in the tank climbed right into my hand. She was almost velvety... I was done. She climbed up onto my shoulder and I put my hand into the tank again. A second one climbed up onto my hand as well, but I put it back.

I took the first one home.

within an hour, I had decided I didn't want her to be lonely, so I went back for the other one too. The girl was still there, and when I put my hand back in, the same little gecko hopped up. She said "Look, it remembers you!" 

I took that little one home too.

Now I have to come up with some names...
