Man are the Geckos in the neighborhood tail-less?

Even the baby ones?

Awww the poor lil' fella! I do think the tails come away fairly easily as a defense mechanism. I wonder what's scaring the tails off the geckos...?

I am sure that answer is affirmative. The tail will be growing soon.

Maybe Nunu got to it first. You can add it to her list of what she likes to chew!

Alias said...

That is odd. Maybe you should Google it. It looks like half-gecko, half-frog.

Oh their tails come off pretty easy if they are caught in something or by something..

The Tailies are on the other side of the island !

You've never seen what happens when a gecko loses its tail? It's very interesting because the tail, all by itself, wiggles like crazy, distracting the attacker from its original prey (the gecko), allowing the gecko to get away. Well, if all goes right.

Here's a video of a wiggling gecko tail.

Jorge,

The Geico gecko! NOT!

Gina Perry said...

Perhaps they've evolved to avoid door-slamming amputations!

Jenea said...

Maybe it's frog!??? :)

Poor little gecko. :-(

LMAO - we're in Aruba right now and the geckos keep losing their tails. I had no idea this was a defense mechanism. It does flop around to confuse a predator...and will grow back. Kinda weird and gross.

Happy New Year :)
