Not My Cup by CatharsisJB Not My Cup by CatharsisJB
Sorry for the edit - now available as a print!

Tequila says, "Celebrating your stupid birthday is NOT my cup of tea. Also tea parties are LAAAAAAaaaaaame. ... Wait, you have candied crickets? Well... maybe I'll stay for a little while. But I did NOT bring a present. Unless you count what I just left on your table."

I am actually very happy with Tequila - when I first got him (first month or two), he was intensely feisty and had bitten me hard enough to break the skin twice. After a few more months of handling, he has become one of my calmest geckos. He keeps an eye on me at all times but easily hand-walks and then eventually just curls up and goes to sleep in my hand.

He is also a huuuuge oinker. I had to put him on a diet!

I can't believe it took a few months for safe handling! What a fiesty little bundle.
I have to say I'm jealous that he just sleeps in your hand...

Great shot... really adorable~ And the hat! :)

I really love the shots of your cresties and the little comments you have on them. I think it really make the picture. I especially love what Tequila said, "But I did NOT bring a present. Unless you count what I just left on your table". :rofl: I can so see one of my herps leaving me the same "present" on my b-day.:lol:
