    Today my House Geko escaped and ran straight up the wall. I had the hardest time catching him and he hates being handles. I had to use a margerine container. He just sat there staring at me and laughing.

    No pics, cause I was to busy freaking out to take any.

    Awww, good thing you were able to catch him before he made an escape!

    That reminds me of one time when I was little. I had my pet green tree frogs sitting on my toy horses (don't ask why, I was six years old...) and left the room for a moment. When I came back, the frogs were gone! I spent hours searching the whole room for them, completely distraught, and after hours of searching began to give up hope. I flopped down on the bed (after being certain there were no frogs there), and...lo and behold, there they were on the ceiling! I laughed so hard. They were successfully recovered and put back in their tanks, and lived good long lives. [​IMG]

    The same nearly happened when I had my iguana! I won him (or her?) at a festival game and I took it out to show some friends. The darn thing ended up crawling all the way up our fireplace (made of stone). We had to get a ladder out and even then he ran away and climbed all over our shades... until he got on the linoleum floor in the kitchen [​IMG] then he couldn't run anywhere.

    I lost my day gecko that way. He crawled up the wall,and onto the ceiling, I couldn't get him. I can't remember at what point I quit trying but I never did catch him.
