  • Hi, guys! It's Em.

  • Please excuse the general tiredness happening up here

  • because I've just got back from America.

  • So I may or may or may not have brought a new baby home with me....

  • Tada! Just kidding. [giggles]

  • So yesterday, I went into my local pet shop,

  • and I went to go and buy myself some supplies

  • because with all my animals to feed at home, I always need supplies.

  • I need frozen mice for my snakes, I need new seed mix for my hamster,

  • my two geckos, my tenrecs, my possum, my foster ferret, and my cockroach.

  • Cockroaches.

  • I have a lot of animals at home. Okay. Let's just get that clear.

  • I love my local pet shop because they do really, really good work.

  • Unfortunately for me, they have a rescue section.

  • I've got a bit of a thing where I don't like to buy animals if I can rescue or adopt.

  • I far prefer to do that, and it's kind of my kryptonite.

  • I go into the shop, I walk past all the animals that are for sale,

  • I go straight to have a look at what might be available for adoption.

  • And usually I just wanna look at them and my friends in the shop will let me play with them

  • and cuddle them and love them and ponder them and where I could fit them at home.

  • I just want to shout out all the animal girls out there. The struggle is real.

  • You know the struggle. Hit that like button if you know the struggle.

  • And yesterday I walked straight to the feed section,

  • which happened to be the reptile section,

  • and I went to go pick up my locusts for my animals at home.

  • And then I made the biggest mistake ever.

  • I glanced to my left.

  • That's my right. I glanced to my right. [giggles]

  • And in the corner of this little vivarium,

  • I see the cutest little crested gecko.

  • Just squished, peeking behind a leaf at the glass at me.

  • And anybody who doesn't know what a crested gecko looks like they are just the cutest geckos ever.

  • He was so tiny. I work with crested geckos which are, you know,

  • full adult size, sort of like, you know, 9-10 inches long.

  • This one is like this big and he's peeking at me.

  • And there was a post-it note on it which said "For adoption." I was like...

  • Oh my God. So I had to ask my friends in the shop.

  • I said, "What is the deal with this crested gecko?" And they said that he got dumped.

  • Yeah, she was sold a couple of weeks ago,

  • and then got returned because they changed their mind.

  • So she's up for adoption.

  • I was just like... [heavy breathing]

  • Insert heavy breathing!

  • They said, "Em, do you wanna...

  • hold him?"

  • Yeah, I do! [laughing]

  • I had him in my hands, and he was just ,you know, super quick because he's not used to being handled,

  • but he's just the most gorgeous thing and I turn around after a little bit of time,

  • and my friend who works in the pet store there.

  • He's standing there with a tub and he's like, "I knew you were gonna take it home."

  • And I was like, "Yeah I am!"

  • So I wanna introduce you guys to my new gecko Hold on. Wait. Do not move.

  • So this little guy is my new Gecko. He doesn't have a name yet,

  • so if you have a name suggestion, please pop it down below.

  • I would really appreciate a couple of suggestions.

  • I think he's a boy. He's really good.

  • I can tell that he's been handled a little bit.

  • Because you know he's not flighting, and typically you get baby geckos

  • and they're leaping off into the abyss at every chance they get.

  • They will literally be what like this and just leap off into nowhere. and just, splat, on the ground.

  • So if you have a little crested gecko, do be careful not to hold them too high up

  • because they do have a tendency to leap.

  • Oh, hello. Are you handsome?

  • I think you're very handsome.

  • Oh, okay, let's let's walk on Emma's nose. This is a very fun game.

  • I have a gecko on my nose.

  • Okay, this this is a good look right here.

  • I need this tattooed on immediately.

  • Oh my God.

  • Gecko eyebrows. They're gonna be the new thing on Instagram.

  • Oh, where are you going? Come back!

  • Ah! Oh my God, you're adorable.

  • Oh, he's getting ready to jump.

  • Here, jump here.

  • You gonna jump? I'm launching in 3, 2 — oh.

  • That's okay. That happens to the best of them.

  • Crested geckos are really commonly kept as pets.

  • They're quite easy to keep.

  • It's not to say you should rush out and buy one, you should give it serious consideration

  • and I've kept these guys extensively. I always know my limits,

  • I never bring home more than what I can afford to look after, both in time as well as financially.

  • So it is a responsibility. I just want to throw that out there.

  • Please don't feel that it's okay just to rush out and buy something because it's cute.

  • Because it's not fair. Ultimately, it's a life that you're responsible for.

  • Everything that happens to him from now on is my responsibility.

  • Equally, any animal you bring home is your responsibility.

  • No, they can't tell you when they're in pain,

  • or what they need, so you have to be able to provide them with as much care as possible.

  • Everyone thinks that crested geckos have like suckers on their legs.

  • He's actually got microscopic little hairs that help him to climb up vertical surfaces and hold on.

  • So that's a fun fact for you.

  • if his progress continues and I think it will,

  • because he's just such a lovely, laid-back gecko, then he'll be coming with me

  • on shows to meet children in schools to teach them all about

  • exotic pet care and about the environment, and yeah just to be loved by people of all ages!

  • We're going back on my face. That's okay because you can.

  • Oh, maybe not the mouth. Do not repeat at home.

  • Yes, you could just.... ah! Bleugh. Not recommended.

  • And that is Emma's perfect example on how to catch salmonella.

  • So I will let you guys know what name I choose and thank you in advance for your suggestions.

  • I do think he's a boy but I could be mistaken.

  • It could be a girl, but the paws are looking quite large

  • so I would say it's a male offhand.

  • But you know, that can change! Still, I would be quite happy for him to be a little boy.

  • Typically people always want pretty geckos to turn up being female

  • because females can lay eggs and make you money.

  • But he's not gonna be a breeder under any circumstances.

  • Oh, I'm being rude! So a little bit of exciting news that I wanted to tell you guys is that

  • I'm going to start featuring some of my workplace animals in my videos.

  • For anyone who doesn't know, I basically work in animal education, animal encounters.

  • So taking animals into schools, giving talks... It is very exciting,

  • I'm gonna start featuring some of my workplace animals in my videos,

  • so let me know what you'd like to see!

  • If you follow me on my social media,

  • you will know that I work with a lot of different animals.

  • Animals like fruit bats, armadillos, meerkats, birds of prey.

  • Let me know what you would like to see a video of, and in particular.

  • if there's a particular kind of video you'd like,

  • like the reproduction of the animals or how to handle them

  • or just like general showing them off. Just let me know.

  • I'm gonna pop this guy back now. Because you are a superstar for your first time out.

  • Yes, you were. I'm so happy with him,

  • he is so cute!

  • He's got this really lovely little fat belly and, you know, he's just in great condition.

  • So although he is a rescue, you know, he wasn't neglected or anything, I don't think.

  • He seems in great condition, and he still got his tail!

  • These guys can lose their tail, so if you're handling a crested gecko,

  • do be careful not to pinch them or to stress them out too much

  • because they will drop their tail, and they won't grow it back.

  • If they do drop their tail,

  • you know, it's not the end of the world. Some people actually prefer it

  • and call crested geckos who don't have their tails "frog butts."

  • In fact, my boyfriend, Danny, and I,

  • just two weeks ago in America,

  • Adopted a frog butt crested gecko with a bulgy eye.

  • I have to show you him, he's the funniest thing. His name's Ziggy, as in Ziggy Stardust.

  • This is Ziggy, and one of his eyes is a bit special.

  • We think it's because of head trauma but we don't know for sure. He's an adoption.

  • But yeah, this is my little dude. Let me know what your thoughts are and what his name could be.

  • And for my current subscribers, thank you so much for subscribing to my channel.

  • It means amazing things to me to see my subscriber count go up every single day.
