Day gecko on show

The Standing’s day gecko that hatched here earlier this year has been moved to one of the display vivariums in the Discovery Room. This lizard hatched in July and is now about half adult size.  

There are well over 1000 species of gecko, which range in size from less than 2cm to over 30cm. These reptiles use their long tongues to clean their eyes.
