Aleks got a new pet. It's our first, excluding Zorak the praying mantis. I chose the name Esteban because I felt like I couldn't say "leopard gecko" and not think "jaguar shark," like the fictional creature in The Life Aquatic. The jaguar shark ate Esteban in the film, which provides the premise of the film: hunting it down for the scientific purpose of revenge. We won't kill Esteban though. He's quite friendly. He's also only a year old and I found out after the adoption that he's likely to live for 15 years.
