Day Gecko (640x618)

  • Geckos are mostly small, usually nocturnal reptiles with a soft skin
  • Day geckos inhabit the islands of the south-west part of the Indian Ocean
  • Many species have bright green, red, and blue colours, these brilliant colours play a role in intraspecies recognition and also serve as camouflage
  • The length of the different Phelsuma species varies between about 6.5 and 30 centimetres (2.6 and 11.8 in)
  • Day geckos feed on various insects and other invertebrates in the wild. They also eat nectar, pollen, and occasionally soft, ripe and sweet fruits such as bananas.
  • In contrast to most other gecko species, day geckos are active mainly during the day
  • The tails of geckos may be long and tapering, short and blunt, or even globular. The tail serves in many species as an energy storehouse on which the animal can draw during unfavourable conditions.
  • They can instantly shed their tail if they are caught by a predator, and then grow a new one
  • Most geckos make noises such as chirping, barking, and clicking when they are defending their territory or attracting a mate.
