Some of them you can... even Leopard Geckos & Viper Geckos that come from Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc. need some humidity to help them shed, and prevent them from getting dehydrated. In fact, standard equipment for a leopard gecko enclosure is a humid hide box in the warm end of the enclosure for these reasonss. :)

I know of quite a few people in Vegas who keep geckos and have no problems. But, there are a few hundred different species of geckos, from all kinds of different climates, so it's impossible to give a yes or no to encompass them all as a whole. Some like it tropical, almost rainforest conditions, some like it very dry, with just a small water pool, or dew (misting with a spray bottle) on tank foliage for fluids.

My corns never have problems shedding, and they are all east-coast types right? Hmmm... this might be an investment worth looking into... Can you hold them?

Yeah, corns are native to Florida & Georgia... Mine live in a big back porch on the back of the house (it's basically like a big 25'x15' room with screen windows)... There's no direct sunlight on their cages, so their temps stay pretty good.. As far as humidity goes, other than what's in the air, they all get their water bowls washed & refilled daily, so that keeps things good.

Simply having a water bowl helps keep the humidity up for most species. But with leos and other similar habitat geckos, it's always a good idea to have the humid hide in the warm end.

Leos like being held pretty good, although you might be better with an African Fat Tailed Gecko... they get a LITTLE bit larger, and generally aren't as flighty as leos CAN be (with leos, it's 50/50 whether you get a mellow one or one that doesn't like to be held, although most will calm down pretty good as adults)... AFT's are pretty mellow from day one.

The viper geckos like to be held, but they're REAL small... They only get 3-4" long as adults, so it can be difficult to pick them up and move them around sometimes, but they make great display animals. They don't stress out from human contact, they love it, they're just kinda delicate.

Wow! Just caught this! GEICO eat your heart out! --Geez, John --- you should contact GEICO about that and sell it for print and billboard advertising -- "Save over 15% with GEICO" (or whatever slogan they're using now) -- man, I'm dead serious.

Playing Sherlock Holmes for a sec -- I'm looking at the copper content in that quarter and I'm thinking about 1979 on the flip side of that quarter...but you probably picked it up and speant it so I guess we'll probably never know for sure.

Actually, I've still got the coin... a quarter doesn't buy you much at a reptile show ;)

I did flip it over and in fact it's 1990 :)

Speaking of small...what is this? I found it in my flower garden in 2002. In Pennsylvania we call it a Newt, or a baby salamander. Is it related to the Gecko branch?
