About the Gecko

A gecko is a type of lizard that has sticky pads on its feet, which allows it to climb walls, ceilings, and even glass!

They come in a variety of colors, from bright greens and yellows to browns and grays, and they are found in many different habitats, from deserts to rainforests.

Geckos feed on insects and spiders, and they are nocturnal, which means they are active at night.
