Standing's Day Gecko

About the Standing's Day Gecko

Like other Day Geckos, this species eats a range of invertebrates, nectar and pollen. Males and females can both be very territorial, defending their home tree from same-sex rivals. Geckos are great climbers and use special scales on the underside of their toes to cling to surfaces.

Tiny hair-like scales hook into any irregularity in the surface, meaning these lizards can even walk upside-down on glass.
