The toes are fantastic. Nice picture
Crazy how they can get those hairs so small that they start sharing electrons with the surface of objects, wish we could do!
Each of those toe pads is made up of thousands of tiny hairs which is what lets geckos walk on walls. Humans are looking for ways to make use of this natural technology for new kinds of glues. More on biomimicry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biomimicry
