Lemmy is my primary vanity gecko. I purchased her from Crested Gecko on 3/1/04. She hatched in June of 2003.

When I say that Lemmy is my #1 vanity gecko, I mean that there is no way I'll be breeding her, and I never intended to- I bought her solely because she is awesome and and I wanted her. Lemmy is a Patternless Rainwater Albino. There are many other websites that explain the ins and outs of the genetics of leopard gecko coloration better than I can. So, suffice to say that she is two neat things at once. She is a pastel yellow, with an apricot-colored area on her tail. Her eyes are a pastel pink.

This first set of photos (including the one above) was taken on 11/16/05, when she was 43g.








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.
