Green Gecko Single Sided Wooden Puzzle
Geckos are able to vocalise. Green Geckos are quite loud for their size and produce a sound more like a “bark”. They are mainly nocturnal. Geckos have ‘sticky’ feet. Their toes are covered with microscopic hairs that allow them to climb sheer surfaces and even walk upside down across the ceiling. Unlike skinks, Geckos cannot blink and must lick their eyes to keep them moist. Geckos are able to drop their tails. This is a predator defence mechanism. The tail then regrows over the next few years. In New Zealand Geckos are extremely slow breeding and long lived. Some Geckos have been known to live for at least 42 years in the wild. New Zealand Geckos are unusual in that they give birth to live young rather than laying eggs. They mainly eat insects, e.g. moths and flies, however they also enjoy the berries of plants and the nectar of some flowers.
