Garon's Gecko
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Slithery, sliding, slowly climbing: the reptiles were coming to the fair. Garon spent several hours visiting the Reptile Zoo at the fair this year. He saw small alligators, turtles, snakes, lizards and dragons. Garon loved visiting all the animals in the "R-Zoo" and he was excited to learn about each one.
 
2     Garon liked the Gila monster because it was so big and scary. He liked the tortoise because of its hard shell. He liked the chameleons because they were able to change color. But his favorite reptile was the gecko.
 
3     Garon learned a lot about geckos from the man in charge of the "R-Zoo". He learned that the gecko is the only lizard that has a voice. The gecko makes a clicking noise that sounds like "geck-o," and that is how the gecko got its name.
 
4     "What do geckos eat?" asked Garon. The man told him that they eat mostly insects like crickets and cockroaches but they might eat tiny mammals too.
