monito geckos are endangered for two reason.... 1. it is being eaten by the black rat.... and 2. just after world war 2, the us airforce used the island of monito ( the monito geckos only habitat) as a bombing site. because the island is so small, this affected the island a lot and now there are believed to be less than 250 left in the wild, the monito gecko is critically endangered.
