My son has wanted a lizard of some kind for 2+ years he even did a book report on Bearded Dragons last year. This was his visual aid to go along with that report:
We held his birthday party this past weekend, and for that we got him a kritter keeper with a Crested Gecko book inside, and taped photos of a gecko we purchased form JBsCresties to the sides... When he opened it, he said "I'm so close to getting one now!" where my wife explained to him we did buy him one... and the one in the photos (named Valer) is HIS gecko to be delivered on Wed. He was pretty excited about that =)
Here are some photos taken just a few days ago by the breeder.
Thanks to SubRosa for the help in picking what lizard to go with as a first... We are really excited to get this guy in tomorrow!
