A gold dust day gecko ponders refreshment on a bird of paradise
Gold dust day geckos have a lot of character. They’re largely unperturbed by human presence, often just returning the gaze of the big-headed creature looking at them. If they do feel threatened, they’ll disappear in an instant, usually just running off, but sometimes hurling themselves into space before sticking to whatever surface they were aiming for.
I found this gecko on a bird of paradise flower. I like the cheeky grin above, then the look of contemplation, and finally the reward.
