MEET MAPL's SPECIAL PAL!Green Leopard Gecko icon

Say hello to GUS! Gus is a leopard gecko (Eublepharis macularius) and he lives in the Children's room. You can stop by to see him anytime the library is open.

The picture below is from his latest glamour photo shoot, taken right here in Matawan. You can see him live on the Gus Cam by clicking the image below. While watching Gus, please do not tap on the glass 😜. Gus has provided us with a number of videos below just in case he isn't active on the Live Cam.
