The strangest thing I ever did see

Lichenose Gecko (Uroplatus fimbriatus Malagasy leaf-tailed gecko).   This guy is hanging on the wall looking to be asleep.  Scientists are looking into the adhesive quality of his feet and thinking about how to apply it to things like surgery.  Cool.

Sad but true, it says in the database that we have two males and no females at the San Diego Zoo. Both Dallas and Houston have a female but no male. I have an idea… let’s borrow the two females and make some baby geckos.
