Jinni is a Leopard Gecko. Leopard geckos get their name from the leopard-like spots that cover the backs of adult leopard geckos.They are indigenous to the Middle East and parts of Northern India. The most notable trait of leopard geckos is their unusually gentle disposition.Leopard geckos have a tail that can detach if grabbed by a predator, giving them time to escape, fat stored inside their tail allows them to survive times of famine. They also shake their tail as communication when hunting, mating and defending territory. They are very pretty lizards that come in a variety of colors.
Jinni belonged to a lady who got her as a companion for her male leopard gecko. After laying 4 consecutive clutches her owner realized they would need to be separated. Jinni’s owner decided that she did not have the time to provide both pets with the attention and interaction that they need, and so she placed her with us so that we could offer her the life she deserves.
