Fan Footed Gecko

This nocturnal species is an exceptional climber, able to run across vertical rock faces and even overhangs and cave roofs.

The secret of this remarkable ability lies in its specialised toe scales, known as scansors, which bear thousands of microscopic, hooked hair-like projections that enable the toes to grip even the most slippery surfaces.

DID YOU KNOW? Geckos can like their eyes, which are exactly how they clean them.
