Nice!

Geckoes can be identified by the feet which have round sticky pads at the ends of the toes. Did you notice the second, smaller one in the crack between the planks of wood?
Please take the time to fill in the other fields, especially the habitat where you saw it as this is very important for our researchers.
Geckoes pueden ser identificados por los pies que tienen almohadillas adhesivas redondas en los extremos de los dedos de los pies. ¿Te diste cuenta que la segunda, más pequeña, en la grieta entre los tablones de madera?
Por favor, tómese el tiempo para llenar los otros campos, especialmente el hábitat en el que lo vio, ya que es muy importante para nuestros investigadores.
