Gecko gazing

Gold dust day gecko (gets its name from the yellow spots on its neck) is an unusual creature that will grow a new tail if needed. Because they don't have lids their long tongue lubes their eyes. They are quarrelsome (note the scrape between the eyes of this one), they chirp, and they can turn on and off at will rows of what looks like light-colored tire tread on the bottoms of their feet that allow them to walk on vertical and on the underside of horizontal surfaces, even glass.
