Information about Geckos:
Geckos are lizards that belong to the family Gekkonidae. They are only found in warm climates. Unlike other reptiles, geckos can make vocalizations by chirping in which they can interact with other geckos. Geckos represent the largest family of lizards with over 2,000 identified species. Geckos are able to drop their tails if they are attacked by a predator in order to confuse them (the tail will continue to wriggle after the gecko has made it’s escape.
These active lizards are some of the most colorful animals in the world, with many of the species having purples, neon greens, reds, blues and yellows. Geckos are very popular in the pet trade and thousands of people worldwide own and/or breed them. Geckos adapt very well to virtually any warm environment, and because of this they have established themselves in many areas they are not native to, such as Hawaii and Florida in the US. Geckos are able to crawl up and cling to virtually any surface due to the special adaptation in their toes. Some cultures believe that to have a gecko in your house is a good omen.
