You have a good Tuesday too! Long posts never bother me. Hopefully they'll test you and let you know what you're fighting. And Why oh why do those critters always have a smile on their face?Good Morning all,
Well I went to bed last night with a dry cough, sneezing, slightly scratchy throat and tossed and turned the whole night because I was either too hot or my body just was feeling wierd and could not get comfortable. I am staying at home today and I am waiting for my doctor to advise if I should get tested for the corona virus. I am sure it is just the normal flu, as it is our flu season now (I was not able to get a flu vacccine as I had just recovered from the flu and was struggling with my lungs still when the vaccine came out - beside I have heard that if you have never had the vaccine then the first time it hits you very bad and I did not think that this was the right time to start getting the vaccine) Anyway, we will see if I just have the normal flu or if I will be tested for covid-19.
I worry though, because if I do have it, Stephen is diabetic and he will probably have it by now as well. Which is so not good, I believe that diabetics are the worst cases here in SA for the covid-19 virus.
Anyway enough about covid, she has had enough talking about her for a while now and it is time to talk about something else.
So I have decided to get a crested gecko to put in my enclosure that I had for my baby tortoises. They have all be upgraded to their enclosure outside permantely and are very happy even in this winter weather. The eggs that were laid last year never hatched. So I wanted to put something in my enclsoure that I have. And after a lot of research I at first wanted to put an African Fat Tailed gecko in, but apparently we are not allowed to have them here in Cape Town. You can keep them in Durban which is wierd. So the next choices were a Pictus Gecko or a Crested Gecko.

I decided on the crested as they apparently live for 20 years and they look the closest to a dragon for me. (well for what I can keep in my enclosure - with it being a humid enclosure) The only draw back is that they do like to jump, so I will need to be careful and make sure that I keep an eye on the jumping so that it does not go and jump onto the cat or dog etc.
Anyway have an awesome Tuesday. And sorry for the long post.
