Lemmy is the only girl who could rival Mew for the title of 'sweetest gecko in the colony.' She's very mellow. I also suspect
she may have been effected by inbreeding in her genetic history, somewhere along the line. She has a kinked tail, and a dent
in her head (which is hard to see in photos). I also think she may have a slight degree of mental retardation. She is prone
to digging at the paper towel in one area of her enclosure, slowly and purposefully. As it happens, it doesn't bother me.
I think she is a sweet girl, and she seems quite content with her lot. However, for this reason she'll definitely never
be bred, even if a stunning young Patternless RW Albino male showed up at my door. She's a gentle soul, and gets along very
well with her cagemate, Veruca. Her name comes both from the obvious fruit and the singer for Motorhead.
