Tokay Gekko

Gekko gecko


The coolest gekkos on earth, if you ever hear their distinctive tok-kay in the jungles of Asia .... this is the guy! their sticky feet allow them to climb anywhere!


jungles of Asia


unfortunately this guy had been attacked by a monitor lizard and i had to put him down after trying to help him recover without any success. These guys are under threat as their salivia is used in Chinese medicine!

Beautiful pics and great macro. Sorry that your little one couldn't pull through. I tried to get one of the feet a while back too. Your shot is much clearer than mine.
