Small gold dust day gecko in the rain

Small gold dust day gecko in the rain

A very young gold dust day gecko looks around on a ti leaf covered in raindrops. It has to stay alert or it will lose more than just the tip of its tail that it’s lost already.

      Well, it is a gecko eat gecko world, but it’s quite common to see geckos of all sizes missing some or all of their tail. When they’re in a tight spot, they can shed the tail to distract their attacker. The shed tail flops around all by itself – it’s a little bit creepy. But then the gecko can grow a new one almost identical to the original, so that’s not so bad.
