    • The secret to the tape is that it emulates the hairs on the feet of a gecko.
    • While living here I have spotted many, including small shiny skinned skinks, geckos (jing-jocks and tokays), and large monitor lizards.
    • In his suitcases were more than 200 live skinks, geckos, and frogs.
    • On the poorly appreciated role of reptiles and amphibians, he said that geckos, garden lizards, frogs and toads have a vital role to play in the ecosystem.
    • The extraordinary adhesive capabilities of geckos have challenged explanation for millennia, since Aristotle first recorded his observations.
    • Police say burglars had broken in earlier that day, taking exotic animals and equipment worth £640, including two bull snakes, a pair of hypo geckos, two skinks and a corn snake.
    • In another example of blurry physical boundaries, consider the gecko, a lizard remarkable for its ability to walk upside down on ceilings.
    • Experiments using X-ray bombardment eliminated electrostatic attraction as a necessary mechanism for setal adhesion since the geckos were still able to adhere in ionized air.
    • And how do geckos keep their feet clean, despite their adhesive traits?
    • Several species of nocturnal geckos form diurnal aggregations; however, few studies have attempted to determine the benefits or mechanistic basis of these groupings.
    • Unlike these animals, geckos lack glands on the surface of their feet.
    • It's quite a sight to see geckos, small tropical lizards, running up and down walls and across ceilings, without any trouble.
    • They're the tiny little ridges and hairs that geckos have on their feet.
    • There are many other snakes of all different sizes, as well as chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, iguanas, spiders and huge tortoises.
    • If geckos were to rely solely on capillary adhesion for attachment, setal function could be constrained by relative humidity of the habitat.
    • But the design of geckos ' feet, with their huge number of spatulate tips on every sera of every toe, allows many atoms to become intimate with a wall and act as a sort of glue.
    • A wide variety of birds, lizards and marsupials are depicted, including kangaroos, wallabies, goannas, leaf-tail geckoes and many other animals from the region.
    • Climbing geckos use all four feet similarly to produce positive fore-aft forces parallel to the surface that propel the gecko upwards.
    • Since geckos have millions of these hairs on each foot, their combined adhesive force is hundreds of times greater than what is required for the gecko to hang from a ceiling by one foot.
    • Perhaps 100 million years ago, the ancestors of today's geckos became nocturnal predators.
