Introducing: Hugo

Hugo is a gargoyle gecko and the first gecko we owned.  Definitely a learning curve!  At first we fed him crickets and fruit baby food.  However, as a result of a calcium deficiency he developed floppy jaw.  After doing some research and finding out his nutritional needs, he has recovered almost completely.  The only sign of his ordeal is a slight deformity in the hinge of his jaw.  Other than that, he's happy, healthy, and getting big.  We feed him crested gecko diet with a few dusted crickets here and there to keep him active. His name was inspired from the gargoyles in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Laverne, Hugo, and Victor.  His name was originally Laverne after the feisty gargoyle until we discovered that Laverne was a "he", hence the name Hugo.
