Madagascar giant day geckos are bright green, which helps them camouflage among tropical leaves as they wait for prey. Day geckos do not have claws, but their toes have thin, broad, adhesive scales which allow them to climb smooth surfaces.
- Giant day geckos get water from condensation that forms on leaves.
- Geckos are the only lizards that can produce more than a hiss or other simple sound.
- The adhesive scales on a gecko’s toes are called lamellae.
