For a year or more we've had a gecko. A leopard gecko to be precise. This gecko is a favorite pet of T and F. They spend a good amount of time staring at Norbert. He seems to like the attention, and will often come up to the glass, standing on his hind paws, staring back unblinking.
What particularly captivates the children is watching Norbert eat. Now Norbert subsists on mealworms and crickets. Watching him hunt crickets is quite entertaining.
This evening T was staring in the cricket keeper. "There are three crickets left," he announced, "so ill name them Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!"
Great. So now we name the lizard's food.
