    EVIL. LITTLE. CRUDS.

    Mine bit me the other day, and they bite a lot like tokays. They'll just kinda cling down, and refuse to let go. They have surprisingly sharp teeth! Mine clung down for 5 minutes straight.

    Definitely not a good "pet" gecko. Their skin is actually really sensitive and they'll get hurt easily. They like it pretty warm, they're super fast, and they can climb on pretty much any surface (even upsidedown on cardboard.)
    They're also apparently fairly aggressive. If anything, that'd only be a good pet to observe, but they always hide anyway.

    Yeah, they look interesting, but chances are you'll never see the gecko. Mine always hides, I have to dig it out and attempt to catch it whenever I clean the cage. I avoid cleaning as much as I can, because of how much of a pain that is alone. The thing is evil, ahaha
