Geckos are amazing creatures and this activity doesn’t do justice to all their wonderfulness.

Geckos have long fascinated scientists by their ability to stick to walls, walk on ceilings and move easily on even the most difficult surfaces. Though they come in different shades of brown and various lengths they are all from the same family of lizards.

Other common Geckos you will find in your homes or backyard are the Asian House Gecko and Brooks Gecko.
