Geckos are unique among lizards in their vocalizations, making chirping sounds in social interactions.
Many species are well known for their specialized toe pads that enable them to climb smooth and vertical surfaces.
Geckos have no eyelids and instead have a transparent membrane which they lick to clean.
Most geckos lay eggs, but certain species are capable of parthenogenesis.
Geckos can lose their tail in defense, a process called autotomy.
Geckos play a crucial role in the ecosystem by controlling insect populations.
Geckos face threats from habitat destruction, pollution, and being captured for the pet trade.
