Gecko Fun Facts


There are about 900 species of geckos, ranging in size from 1 inch to 14 inches.

The dwarf gecko’s length is less than 1 inch—the smallest gecko.

The flying gecko cannot fly; it only glides using its flaps that are connected to its feet.

Most geckos cannot close their eyes.

Like most lizards, the gecko uses its tail to hold food’s nutrition. However, if trapped, it has the ability to break it off, escape, and grow another.

Geckos are the only lizards that can vocalize.
