A gecko is a type of lizard, which are reptiles. These animals areusually equipped with claws or sticky pads on their feet andusually eat a variety of insects. They can be 1" - 14" in lengthand some species can reach over 300 grams in weight.
The answer is no. Animals of different regions, habitats and Eco systems cannot sustain life with another animals of different likes. A leopard gecko from the deserts of Afghanistan with temperatures reaching in the low 100'sF cannot live with a crested gecko from the rain forests of New Caledonia w…here temperatures never exceed 80F with humidity levels on the scale of upwards of 80%. Species of the exact same region with the exact same requirements can be housed together, and even in these circumstances, most avid hobbyist's do not recommend doing so. There are many factors: Temperament of the species, sex's, size of the animals, cooling period and breeding season, individual temperament's, feeding schedules, humidity, heat, lighting.. (MORE)
There is common lore about the gecko, Latin spelling gekko, that involve luck, regrowth and life in general. Some cultures, like the Polynesians, saw the gecko with fear and awe. They believed that if the gecko "laughed" at you, the bobbing motion associated with this lizard, then it was a bad ome…n. It was a common tribal tattoo within their culture as well. . Other symbolisms include the release and regeneration of the gecko's tail. This is representative of the self preservation and regrowth people go through after trials. The traditional gecko circle represents a cyclical nature of life. . Personally, I find the creature to be very beautiful and highly interesting. I am considering a gecko tattoo on my foot (or feet). Not necessarily due to any symbolism but solely due to the fact that they amuse me.. Another View . Conservation, agility, dreaming, renewal, transformation, ancient energy. Live geckos were kept to warn of the presence of poisonous snakes. Lucky charms carved in their likeness were said to preserve eyesight and worn by pregnant women to insure a safe delivery of a happy healthy child.. In the Phillipines, you were considered very blessed if one lived in your bedroom. They would run around on the ceiling catching bugs, saving yourself from the hungry, nasty bites. If you had two in your room, you were in deed held in awe, double blessed. The show was also a ballet, they are truly amazing, it was rare for one to fall, but I had one fall on my foot one night! (Interesting idea, tattoo on foot.) Great Info. again.. (MORE)
Geckos breathe through there noses. I don't know if they are actually able to breathe through their mouths, but I have 2 leopard geckos and they're mouths are always closed even though they're able to open them (to eat, drink, yawn, etc.). But I'm assuming that just like almost every reptile, geckos… are able to breathe through their mouths and noses that's al least what i think (MORE)
Are they capable ? Yes but no pet or animal should be introduced toanything outside of their natural environment let alone forced todo so. This can be considered animal cruelty.
hi im Annie and i have a gecko so this is what i did You need to feed your gecko insects like crickets, locusts, mealworms or you can feed it pinky mice(dead baby mice). you need a heat mat or something to heat up the tank and the tank has to be fairly big because my gecko loves to explore her tank …also put sand in the tank to make it look a bit more like her home and you can put like small plants into it aswell or bridges or big chunk of wood for it to climb on or anything really to make it look like her home in the wild.p.s. are you getting a gecko if you are what kind of gecko because i have a leopard gecko? When i found out i was getting a gecko i couldn't believe my mum was really letting me have 1 but then i found out that it was proberly dead because no one was looking after it for a whole month. so my granda went to see if it was alive and it was!!!!!!it survived 4 a month without any food, water or sunlight!!!!!! xx Annie xx .

It really depends on the species of gecko. Like leopard geckos don't have pads on the bottom of their feet that allows them to walk on walls or ceilings but house geckos do. Be more specific to get a better answer.
Do not go to petstores. Please go to your local breeder but make sure they are well edicated about these animals. If they are not, leopard geckos may be sick or injured or mal nurished. If you can't find a breeder, as a last resort, go to a petstore. Don't pick out of if its pretty or ugly. Pick out… of health. If it's more than 3 inches it should have a plumpy tail. If it's a babey or adult, if it looks cloudy and it's not shedding DONT buy. Make sure the gecko is in good health before purchasing from anywere. (MORE)
A gecko is not a domesticated pet. They do not retaininformation like a cat or dog. Although, they are capable oflearning routine. This includes: Feeding schedule, mistingschedule, lighting schedule. . In my experiences, geckos do have the ability to distinguishtheir owner/ keeper from others. They… are very observant animalsand will learn smell, voice and tone. (MORE)
No geckos are not slimy. They are llizards and live on land. Most criters that have a slimy covering live in the water and need it for protection. no they are not slimy, they are scaly like a normal lizard
Geckos are reptiles and reptile species are exothermic. Most reptiles will spend their days staying warm and hunting for prey items/ scavenging for fruits and saps. Reptiles have a very slow metabolism and require heat to encourage the digestive system to speed up. Most geckos will consume a very la…rge meal and then take a day or two of rest to digest the meal. Commonly, you can find a gecko basking in the sunlight (or somewhere warmer than the rest of the habitat) after eating. During breeding season, males will smell out females and copulate. Once a year for a 4-8month period the animals are "in season" (or breeding) and the remaining months they are in their "cooling period" (winter months). (MORE)
most of the time female leopard geckos get along with other female leopard geckos and male geckos. bu 2 male geckos will fight possibly leading to death of the smaller one.

T…hey love their space and like most love to hide. Ive been researching and collecting for 3 years now and in my time ive been able to come up with this. Geckos come in a variety of morphs with todays captive breeders you are able to find almost any genus in a variety of colours. morphs are able to co exist EXAMPLE: Your blizzard morph leopard is able to exist with the albino etc.. the harlequin crested can co exist with the dalmation one good mix for not too much money is the tokay and the golden (MORE)

I don't know if different types of gecko can live together, but you definitely can house more than one gecko together. But, you have to be careful-What sex they are is very important. You cannot house males together-They will fight to the death. You can house a male and a female together, but they …will mate and lay eggs, and sometimes, if she is younger, mating can damage the female. You can definitely house more than one female together-They will not fight.(or mate) (MORE)
Geckos range from a warm - hot climate & humid - dry. They come from every continent in the world, except for Antarctica.
Almost nothing - like most reptiles they are solitary animals and prefer to be alone.
Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Order: Squadata Suborder: Scleroglossa infraorder: Gekkota Beyond that, it depends on the species
\n \nCrested geckos are able, though not always willing, to adapt with gargoyle geckos. Though these two species are native to the same region, they are not found on the same islands within Caledonia. The gargoyle geckos are a much more territorial and aggressive species. They are also more robust a…nd typically weigh more than a crested and even in same specie enclosures animals cannot be too much bigger than the other. (MORE)
The Gecko is known for lots of things. It is a popular pet and it has an amazing ability to stick to ceilings because of the sticky skin between it's toes.
Try putting it on a different diet. If that doesn't work, take him to the vet
In some areas of the world geckos are eating on a daily basis. Areas in Asia are well known for eating tokay geckos, believing that it will cure AIDS/HIV. Other areas in Asia believe that it can be used as an aphrodisiac
Geckos do not have the ability to speak, although they do have the ability to vocalize to one another.
Nocturnal colour vision in geckos Lina S. V. Roth and Almut Kelber University of Lund, Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Vision Group, HelgonavaÂ¨gen 3, S-223 62 Lund, Sweden Author for correspondence Our results show that nocturnal geckos are able to dis- criminate colours in v…ery dim light. Exactly what they use this ability for and precisely how well they see colour, remains to be investigated. Geckos are only the second ani- mal group after a nocturnal hawkmoth (Kelber et al. 2002) that have been proved to see colour when we are colour- blind. However, this remarkable ability may be more com- mon than we thought. (MORE)
From experience of keeping leopard geckos i have found that the African fat-tailed gecko is the most related, actually you can keep these to lizards together and they will be fine
Geckos do not have a hard exterior skeleton or a shell for protection. Nor can these animals change color, their only defence is their speed. Most geckos move very slow to ensure a predator does not see them. If spotted they could be eaten by: Mammals, other reptiles, birds of prey, snakes, large …spiders, centipedes, fire ants etc.. (MORE)
Gecko feet have such fine hairs and layers of pads on their feet that they can walk on vertical or even upside down sheets of glass .
Geckos are equipped with many different features, each a little bitdifferent in order to adapt to their environment. Depending on thegecko specie will determine the animals natural habitat and range.Geckos such as the leopard gecko are native to dry, arid, desertclimates and have multiple adaptation…s to survive these extremeclimates: Eyelids, claws, tails. The eyelids because the animalmust burrow to find moisture, lay their eggs and rest during the"un-active" parts of the day. These eyelids allow the animal tocompletely close their eyes, to enable them to dig deep burrows,also due to the high amounts of sand, these animals can block outthe flying dirt and dust. Their claws allow leopard geckos to scalerocky surfaces, to escape a predator or to find a new nesting area.They also allow the animal to dig burrows and nesting sites.Lastly, the tails of the leopard gecko allow it to store fats,proteins and water. Like a tree trunk holding in the water, thatallows the tree to grow, the leo's tail is capable of storing food.This allows the animal to survive long droughts and extended periodof times without food.

there are types that are less "tame" than others, but normally you can tame them. The first 3 weeks of having any reptile don't take it out of their tank or clean the tank. only mess with the tank when feeding and giving water to. After that slowly let it get used to you. I have tamed my leo and she… sits on me fine for awhile. Sometimes if shes not feeling good or is just pissed off at me she will jump but normally she doesn't. (MORE)
Geckos are found in every continent on earth except for antartica. Geckos can thrive in almost any environment that is warm.
Some do but alot of them don't. Some like the leopard geckos, fat tail geckos, cat geckos, and more do have eyelids. Crested geckos, tokay geckos, banana geckos, and more do not have eyelids. The ones that don't have eyelids lick their eyes to keep them moist and clean. no, they have a sort of outer… shell and to moisten their eyes they lick them (MORE)
African Fat Tailed Geckos. They are basically the same care but look a little different. Look them up and see.
yes but they dont blink. its more like a protected sheet that protects there eyes.
It SHOULD - However - make sure they're of simillar size - as the larger one may 'bully' the smaller one !
Other morphs of a leopard gecko. Never put different species together. Also only one male (if any) per tank!
Gecko tape is an experimental material that was developed in 2003 by an international team of scientists from the United Kingdom and Russia. It is a tape that has a surface covered with nanoscopic hairs intended to maximize surface area. Gecko tape hasn't been perfected yet, but when it is, it will …allow humans to walk on walls and ceilings like the reptile gecko. (MORE)
You can buy this pet at your local pet store. ( petsmart, pet supermarket, etc.)
Yes of course, if it is a cricket spider pinky(baby mouse) weaker gecko ( if both are males) and a tokay gecko definitely!
make sure that it has a clean environment. Also you should have some type of vitamins to go with their food. If their tail gets fat, that is a good sign. It is a sign telling you that your gecko is getting all of the vitamins and protein it needs and, is healthy.
That's sort of a question like "What is your favourite food?" You will receive answers ranging from the eublepharis to the rhacdactylus. To a reptile/gecko enthousiaste as myself, there really is no Best. Myself, I've been working with: Fat tail gecko or Hemitheconyx caudicinctus Malaysian go…lden gecko or Gekko Ulikovskii Tokay gecko or Gekko gecko Crested gecko or rhacodactylus ciliatus pictus gecko or Paroedura pictus They are all Very different, have their own taste in food, their own personality And All of my geckos have come a long way from the first day i got them. My fat tail was said to be the alpha male in the tank of approx 8 other fatty's. "I" know your not supposed to house males together but, the pet store did it anyway and he had bitten the tip of the tails off all the other geckos in the tank. This is just to show dominance, there was no pain inflicted. With that said i though he'd be a grumpy fella, but he's an attention grabber, He Loves attention! He loves to be pet too, He just backs up when you go to lift him. My golden and the tokay are very similar. They both have VERY bad reputations, but are amazing to watch and observe. Both of the two can be held but just like your eyes not your hands. They are both female, and i think they look to each other for company, i catch them constantly lieng ontop of one another holding temperature. Or I've experienced the both of them drinking from the waterfall I've set up for them. They are a little timid but are always visually appealing. My pictus gecko i got 4 weeks ago. He is still a LITTLE bit skiddish. The first day i got him, the sounds waves from my voice were enough to send him running. Today, i can not physically pick him up, but trick him into my hand by lifting out his log and dumping him into my palm. He looks around, DAZED=] But he is a hearty little guy. At 4 inches and only 8 grams, he had jumped from my hand and softly landed into my superworm bin, and gobbled down 2 while he was stuck in there. Histarical! And last but not least, my BRAND new crestie! I Got him a week ago and again, Very skidish. Today he had stuck his foot into the clarks diet i provide for him and he Flipped, after doing a couple of laps around the tank, and accumulating mulch and dirt to his feet, He was unable to climb. A BAAATH was necessary at this point and he does not like water LOL! A couple of little storys to try and get you to capture the humor and personality that ALL geckos have! Any questions Msg me =] (MORE)
Geckos are like people. They each have their own personality. Some run and jump and climb on everything, some are lazy and sleep all the time, some sit and look through the glass at everything else that's going on, and some constantly hunt for and chase crickets. Some even try 24/7 to escape their c…age. Mine's lazy. (MORE)
geckos have the ability alter their color in a minor way under stress this would be considered a defense
do not continue to approach it or try to pick it up. Geckos have the ability to vocalize for multiple purposes, felling threatened is one of which.
Yes. As long as you don't make it too tight on your gecko. Don't leave it on him/she for too long. (For more information, look up How do you make a leopard gecko leash)
no because their an animal and we all know that animals don't speak! Animals cannot speak; the closest thing would be imitation , like parrots that mimic sounds they hear and reproduce them without really knowing what they are saying. Ultimately, geckos cannot say "gecko".
As a word, when spelled correctly, Ontario has two "O's", one "N", one "T", one "A", one "R", and one "I".
Animals of the same natural habbitat may co exist with one another. If another species is coming from the same regions as the flying gecko they can be housed together. It is highly not reccomended though for avid reptile keepers.
