Did you know?
Geckos are colourful, small, mostly carnivorous and nocturnal and are found in warm climates throughout the world.
They are reptiles and range in length from 1.6 cm to 60 cm.
Yes, geckos ARE lizards!
But what differentiates them is that they lay eggs in pairs instead of large clutches and they have the ability to vocalize with chirps and barking noises.
Most geckos also lack eyelids and have sticky toes that enable them to climb walls.
They have soft skin, are covered in scales and can live for about 15 years.
