My Pet Leperdy


I have a pet leopard gecko named “Leperdy.” He has a head in the shape of a diamond. He has light purple blobs on him. His belly is soft as a feather. His back is really bumpy. He has polka-dots on his skin. He is squirmy when you hold him. When you aren’t holding him he stays still. Leperdy makes me happy because I love him. He has a cute charm. Dad helps me clean the cage and feed him. His cage resembles a desert. He comes from the desert. There is a crack in his cage. His tongue isn’t sticky like frogs but it strangles crickets and pulls them in. He doesn’t just eat crickets; he eats other bugs like mealworms. We made a system for him to answer questions. If he licks his right eye that means yes, if he licks his left eye that means no. LEPERDY IS ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS!
