Gecko Eating Honey & Bugs
This gecko was filmed in our house in Puerto Armuelles Panama.
Normally, we don’t have geckos on our cutting board but someone who will remain nameless (cough) my husband, left honey on the cutting which brought bugs, and then this gecko.
Found on Ceilings & Walls
Typically you will see geckos on the ceiling and in light fixtures. I mean, you will ’em everywhere but that is where you tend to see them more often.
They have suckers on their feet so that they can stick to the walls and the ceilings.
I enjoy watching them do all sorts of things. They leap to get bugs. They fight each other, and more.
They are even tinier than this when they are born. You will find eggs like these in nooks and crannies in your house that are protected from the sun. The eggs will grow more and more translucent till you can actually see the baby gecko inside.
And if you touch the egg at the right time, it will just open up. And the baby is born. It’s pretty cool
How Geckos Feel
My youngest daughter loves to pet geckos. She says they have soft and smooth skin.
2 Gecko Negatives
Now, some people don’t like geckos. Some don’t like their surprisingly loud clicking noise.
I personally don’t like the poop they leave on my bathroom sink. I leave the light on there all night long and they love to congregate there. Their poop is small, pretty dry, and does not smell.
I Like Geckos
So overall, personally, I think geckos are cool. They eat bugs and are entertaining.
Love or hate them, you will not be able to avoid them in most of Panama.
