How the Leopard Gecko Got Its Spots

I have wanted to make a leopard gecko avatar for quite some time, and finally managed to squeeze this one out of my brain and into the computer over the course of several hours.

Leopard geckos, native to the Middle East, are a variety of “lidded” geckos.  In other words, these guys have eyelids and can blink at you.  Blinkie geckos, unlike the Staring geckos (no eyelids at all), cannot climb walls or glass because they lack those sticky pads on their fingertips.  They also tend to have tiny claws.  They are fairly long lived, with the current confirmed record standing at just over 24 years.  These insectivores come in a variety of colors including Tangerine, Bright Yellow, and Marbled.

Of course, the Leopard Gecko is one of several fat tailed lidded geckos out there.  They are a close relative of the California desert banded gecko, and the African Fat Tail gecko.

All this precursory knowledge aside, the Leopard Gecko avatar from Avatar Bizarre is 100% original mesh and includes the full body alpha.  As it turns out, it can also wear some mesh clothing, though I can’t guarantee it can wear all of it.  I’ve tried it with hats and shirts, mainly, and so far it seems to work for the larger sized items.

Available in five color morphs (Tangerine, Normal, Carrot Tail, Snow, and High Yellow), this avatar is available inworld and on the marketplace.
