"Island's colorful Gecko"
(best when enlarged..you know that don't you)!
The geckos of Hawaii have earned a great reputation rooted in the earliest history and the first migrations to the islands. While there are over 900 species of geckos worldwide, only eight species have settled on the islands, four of these in recent years.
All geckos have immovable eyelids. The eyes with unusual vertical pupils are covered by a transparentmembrane which the gecko cleans with its long, sticky tongue. They are the only lizards who are able to make sounds, other than hissing, and their name is a direct imitation of their nightly chatter.
Hey..maybe Gene Simmon's saw one of these while he was trippin on something?
