    OMG, just reading that gave acrophobia. I hate rollercoasters, but not cuase of the height, but becuase of the empty feeling you get in your gut when the rollercoaster goes down. ~~~~Shiver~~Shiver~~Shiver~~~~
    I remember as a kid going to the roof of the building I live in to watch the Macy's Fireworks from Manhatten on the 4th of July. My neighbor used to climb up to the ledge, sit on it and dangle his legs over the edge. i get woozy just remembering. And we were with our parents!!!!!! The first time, his mom asked me if I wanted to do the same. I dropped to the floor and in a panic said NO WAY!!!
    There is some guy on another forum whose avatar is a pic of him in free fall on a ski diving trip. I can't even look at that avatar.

    Hi Pavel,

    Peanut looks like she's made of velour. And Masq's colors are gorgeous, even if they do give Diane the creeps. Everything gives Diane the creeps. Eyeballs, too!

    That's no trick of the camera -- her skin actually looks that way. But touch-wise its very 'pebbly' feeling. Despite the texture, geckos tend to have very thin delicate skin. Here's a few of her baby pics...





    This shot shows you the mark on her back which led to her naming. Leos color patterns change over time so her 'peanut' pattern is not nearly so distinct anymore.
