12 days of X-Mas: Jonus Ortega, 6, Eagle
Vail, CO, Colorado
The gift: A gecko (the live kind you keep as a pet)
Price: $15 to $50
Why it’s cool: Besides the Geico Insurance mascot, gecko’s don’t speak with British accents (or at all for that matter) but that doesn’t mean they don’t have other things going for them. With over a thousand species of geckos to choose from, they come in many different shapes, colors and sizes. And let’s face it, it’s a lot easier to take care of then a dog or cat.
Where to get it: The Petco store located at 105 Meadow Lane in Glenwood Springs.
For more information: Call Petco at 970-945-1527.
