Standing’s Day Gecko

Phelsuma standingi
Geckos have special toe pads consisting of many microscopic hooks that can adhere to nearly any surface, even smooth rocks and glass. These fantastic feet allow them the ability to forage in places that few other animals can reach. Standing’s day gecko, in particular, depends on its climbing skills as it lives high in the trees.

The gecko’s color changes according to temperature – dark colors in cool temperature to absorb light and heat and light colors in high temperatures to reflect light and heat.
