I took Bren to pick up leopard gecko #3 today from another breeder. She's a Mack Snow Enigma Pigmy, and she is so small. Much smaller than the average size leopard gecko, and that's why he wanted her. If he can breed her and get babies that are that small then he can make some pretty decent money. She's 5 grams, Rae is 10 grams, and Otis (previously named Elizabeth until we found out that she's a he) is 80 grams. Nena is two months old and, like Rae, should be about 10 grams. She is just so cute. I never thought I would call a gecko cute, but they really are. They all three have distinct personalities. Nena loves to be held, and runs around in her aquarium; rarely going into her hide. Rae loves her hide, and stays in there most of the time (it's warmest there). Otis loves human interaction, makes a lot of chirping, and spends about equal time in his hides and on the big branches throughout his aquarium.

I'm going to try and get a picture of all three of them together tomorrow. It's a bit like trying to get a picture of three toddlers together.
You can see how small she is compared to Bren's finger/knuckles.
